GLASS MOSAIC INSTALLATION AND CUTTING GUIDE. Recommended areas for usage include kitchen backsplashes, accent walls, shower and tub surrounds.
Glass Mosaic cannot be installed on the floor because it may be fractured when it is exposed to extreme weights and is vulnerable to scratching. Mosaic sheets can be used in various techniques to enhance your project. Full sheet for large areas. Cutting the sheets into strips to create a border effect. Cutting the sheet into different size (2X3, 3X3, or 4X4) to use as an insert.Spacing: to ensure a consistent grout joint, use a spacer the same size as the grout joint in the mosaic, usually 1/8. Grout: after 24 hours, mix and apply grout following the manufacturers instructions. Use unsanded grout only on all glass tiles to prevent scratching. Clean all excess grout immediately with a damp sponge.
After 12 hours, polish off any remaining grout haze with a dry cloth or towel. Cutting: a wet saw with a diamond blade designed to cut glass is recommended. Cut the glass mosaic with the meshed side up.
For fine cuts, if the glass is too small for the wet saw, use glass nippers. Cleaning: Use a soft, clean cloth with warm water or a non-abrasive acid-free household cleaner.
