Shelby @ The Weathered Barn Studio on Jan 27, 2015...Okay :) you're welcome. Also wants to know the size of it , and is it mosaic, stone, ceramic or glass tile ? This will determine application . As for basics... He said to ' scuff it up ' a bit with some coarse sandpaper or sanding block , wipe off the residue from sanding.THEN PUT UP YOUR TILE , spread the thinset , working in one area at a time , then apply your tile in the sections you have spread the thinset.1 marked as helpful Reply
Shelby @ The Weathered Barn Studio on Jan 27, 2015If you go with a mosaic , you need to spread the thinset with a 1/8 ' v-notch' trowel, and the same thing( tool) as for the glass and stone . I hope this helps , keep me posted ! :)Helpful Reply
