How do I install mosaic tile as trim around my acrylic tub surround?

A Crafty Mix - MichelleCindy Hagemann


I found beautiful sheets of glass mosaic tile on clearance. I cut each of them into 3 strips, 4 inches wide, to use as trim. I just don't know how to do the edging, place the tile, or do a level surface with the mortar. I don't have the tools for this job either. I need guidance, and someone with the right tools to help me.

    Tile can be put on drywall but I would not recommend putting it on acrylic. You need mortar, grout, and other tools as well as a tile cutter. You should get someone to help you with this project.

    It's not too difficult Paula and you don't need complicated tools either. If you're floor is pretty level and you're putting the tiles around the bottom of your bathtub I think it will look amazing. We tiled our whole patio in a morning and I didn't use any fancy tools, just my hands (bad idea  since I didn't wear gloves) and a trowel.
