Is Bondera Appropriate for a Penny Tile Backsplash?
Hi! I'm doing a penny tile backsplash in a kitchen. I wonder if Bondera would be a good material to use with copper pennies. I haven't felt confident in the bond I got when I tested some glues - too brittle, the penny pops off under a fingernail. Do you think Bondera would make secure backsplash?
LOVE,LOVE,LOVE THIS! I wish I could do this or attempt something like this, but I live in a rental . Hopefully some day or maybe I can do a table or something:) great look.
Just curious as to what will be the finished 'grout' or whatever? Cool look! Did you buy them that way?
We used bondera on our kitchen backsplash. Used 6"tiles and mosaic tiles. It went up so easy and we grouted the same day. Since there is mesh on back of penny tile it should work. Good luck!
Hi again! This photo is what I'm trying to achieve. I have a heap of regular pennies, and I want to make a backsplash. As pennies are copper, I'm not sure bondera is an ideal material or not - I'm hoping there's someone out there who has an idea. I tried making mesh sheets of pennies, but the glue was too brittle and the pennies popped free! MY other idea is to cover a board and hang it on the wall (I'm leaning more toward this option, thanks Nancy!)
I'm wondering if the "all in one" tile grout/adhesive you find at Lowes would work. I've used that on many tile projects (walls only) with great success. Do let us know what works.... I'd like to put penny tile behind my stove area.
Yes, Bondera TileMatSet worksgreat for any type of backsplash as long as you don’t use anything larger than a 6x6 tile on a vertical surface. First, position the tile adhesive on the wall, then set the coins on a steady surface. Here’s a similar project made by Amanda - http://godisgoodgodisgreat.blogspot.ro/2013/11/amandas-do-it-yourself-penny-backsplash.html.

Hello Bondera. I think part of your message is left out. You wrote "Bondera TileMatSet works great for any type of backplash as long as the penny backsplash".......What? As long as what? I need to know as long as what!
Help answer this question...Carmen Brooks-Click on the three dots at the end of the statement and you see the rest of the sentence and a link to their website. I think that is the same for many websites that limit the length of a post. Cheers!
I used Bondera on my kitchen glass tiles and it has held up great for almost 2 years.
this is the backsplash before I put the outlet plates on.
Like this a lot I did the whole front of my fireplace with over 7000 pennies I have a pic on my site
