Project Instructions

 

 

 

Instructions

 

Step 1: Select Your Materials

 

Before you begin, it's always a great idea to have a concept in mind. Consider a design based on color themes, swirls, flowers, or even geometric shapes.This project showcases our new XL Patterned Glass Gems serve as a focal point in this design.

 

Step 2: Tile Adhesion

 

Apply your cement-based adhesive using a palette knife. Lay your tiles in the bead of adhesive, ensuring they are securely adhered. Before proceeding, run your hand over the mosaic to check that all tiles are firmly in place. Allow the adhesive to dry for 24 hours before moving on to the next step.

 

To get a good placement of the Glass Snippet tiles we recommend cutting these tiles into smaller pieces using a glass cutter.

 

Step 3: Grouting

 

For grouting, it's important to wear gloves to protect your hands from drying out. Mix a small amount of powdered grout with water until it reaches a porridge-like consistency. Apply the grout onto the tiles, making sure to rub it into the gaps between them. Once the entire mosaic is covered, remove the excess grout and allow it to dry.

 

Cover the birds with masking tape (or something similar) as they are unglazed. This will prevent the grout from staining the birds.

 

Step 4: Cleaning and Buffing

 

Once the grout has started to dry (it will become dull), carefully remove the excess grout with a sponge. Leave it for 24 hours, and then give the mosaic a final buff-up to remove any remaining traces of grout.

 

Follow these steps, and you'll have a beautiful mosaic creation to proudly display!
