    Materials Needed
  • Flat, unpainted wood picture frame, 8” x 8”
  • 1 lb. bag Mosaic Mercantile Crafter’s Cut tile (Shown: Safari color family)
  • 1/6 lb. bag Mosaic Mercantile glass Jelly Beans (Shown: Mountain Meadows)
  • 1/3 lb. bag Mosaic Mercantile Lux Mini tiles (Shown: Seagreen)
  • 4 oz. bottle Mosaic Mercantile Mosaic Tile Adhesive
  • 8 oz. jar Mosaic Mercantile Premixed, Non-Sanded Grout (Shown: White)
  • Mosaic Mercantile Basic Tile Nipper
  • Mosaic Mercantile Applicator Set
  • 8 oz. bottle Mosaic Mercantile Mosaic Grout Sealer
  • other: sponge brush or paintbrush; small disposable cup; buffing cloth



Step 1 - Tiling
Using the craft sticks or notched spreader, apply an even layer of adhesive to frame, working in small areas. Adhere tile, starting with the Lux on the outer edge. Lay the Crafter’s Cut around the perimeters first, then fill in, dotting with Jelly Beans.

Step 2 - Grouting
Clean any dirt, debris or excess adhesive from the tile surface and between the tiles. Once the adhesive has firmly set, apply the grout liberally with the flat spreader, working it thoroughly into the crevices and distributing it evenly across the frame.

Step 3 - Cleaning
After the grout has set for approximately 25-30 minutes, use a damp sponge to wipe off the excess. Wiping in a circular motion helps ensure a smooth surface. When the grout has fully dried, buff away any grout residue with a soft cloth.

Step 4 - Sealing
Grout should cure for 24 hours before sealing. Shake the sealer well. Brush one thin layer onto the mosaic. Remove excess from the surface of the tiles by gently wiping with a cloth or dry sponge. Allow the grout sealer to dry for at least two hours.
