Keepsake Box

Posted by Administrator on 2/13/2015 to Mosaic Projects
    Materials Needed
  • 1 - Keepsake Box
  • 1 lb. Classic Tile
  • 1/2 lb. of white sanded grout
  • 4 oz. bottle Mosaic Mercantile Mosaic Tile Adhesive
  • Mosaic Mercantile Basic Tile Nipper
  • Mosaic Mercantile Applicator Set
  • other: sponge brush or paintbrush; small disposable cup; buffing cloth



Step 1 - Designing
Decide on your project's color and design theme. You can create colorful patterns and images by nipping mosaic tile into halves, quarters or irregular shapes using one of our specialized tile cutting tools, breaking the tiles in the enclosed plastic bag with a hammer or using the tiles whole and uncut.

Step 2 - Gluing
Using one of our glue spreading tools, apply a layer of Mosaic Adhesive onto both the project surface and the textured side of each tile. Work within a small area at a time for best results.


Place tiles onto your project with the smooth side up, textured side down. Aim for a 1/8" or less "crevice" between tiles. Allow adhesive to set of 5-6 hours before proceeding.

Step 4 - Grouting
Using our grout applicator tool, spread Mosaic Grout onto the tiles. Work grout into the crevices until the grout is smooth and level with the tile surface.

Step 5 - Cleaning
Wipe off excess grout with a damp Grout Sponge. When the grout has thoroughly dried, polish the tile surface with a damp paper towel until the tiles are shiny and free of grout residue.

Finished!
Congratulations! You're ready to use and admire your new mosaic masterpiece.
