Silver Bling Mirror Glass Mosaic Tile for use as an architectural surface covering. The iridescent appearance and sleek touch lend itself to be mixed and matched perfectly with your bathroom, kitchen.
To initiate the bond coat, use the flat side of a trowel and firmly apply a thinset to the substrate.
To establish the proper depth of the setting bed, use a 3/16” x 1/4” v-notch trowel to apply additional thin-set and comb full notches in one direction.
Use the flat side of the trowel to flatten the notches and achieve a smooth, consistent thinset setting bed.
Apply mosaic sheets to the thinset setting bed, tape side towards you, with light, even pressure. When joining sheets, be certain to adjust sheets so that grout lines are uniform. Periodically, check thinset for skinning (slight drying). If skinning occurs, remove thinset and reapply.
To achieve the flattest possible surface, lightly tap the sheets using light pressure with a grout float or a wooden beating block and a finish hammer. To unify sheet transitions, tap from one sheet to the next.
3/16" or 1/4" square notch trowel should be used when installing our glass material and ridges should be smoothed down with the flat side of the trowel prior to fixing the tiles in the mortar bed. Tiles larger than 3x3 should be back-buttered with a thin continuous layer of the thinset applied with the flat side of the trowel.
To speed up the drying process, we recommend cutting small slits in the plastic to facilitate airflow. Additionally, it is very important that the plastic be peeled off at a flat angle - do not grab an edge and pull straight up. Instead, peel it backwards while pressing down on the still covered side and slowly pulling back.
