Step 1: Tracing

Start by marking the marker to the surface to be tiled. Using the bubble level and the Mason ruler, draw a vertical axis, corresponding to the height of your mosaic tiles.

Glue the wall under your axis with the notched spatula, in the direction of the length.
Place the first tile and press it against the wall. With a cleat, press on the tiles to level them well.

At each glue overflow, remove the excess with a damp sponge.

Step 3: The cuts

For corner cuts and possible obstacles, take the measurements then use the nibbler, either for the lengths or just for a few tiles.

Step 4: The join

Let the glue dry 24 hours then remove the braces.
Then apply the slip at the seams to the squeegee. Before the product takes, smooth your joints with a stick and remove the excess.
