How-to install glass tile over metal of fireplace? Pix attached.


1x1 glass tiles on a mesh backing - to be installed over the metal of my 3-sided fireplace - what to use to adhere the glass tile?

At one time I had found on the web rolls of double faced sticky stuff designed for tile installation - but I cannot find it now...

Suggestions?

thx!
Vince

Glass tiles get their color from the backing. You need an adhesive to mount to metal, but best to check what the manufacturer of that tile recommends.

I think you're missing an important point here.This is a theoretical tile installation over metal that will get very hot. This metal is light guage and has no rigidity what so ever.
You need another plan or be ready to waste both time and money on a project that will not work.

Actually the outer surface gets just somewhat warm to the touch even with the gas log on high - there is an inner liner that takes the heat of the fire. And the metal mounting area appears to be quite solid - no flex or deflection.

Did you figure out how to tile the metal part of your fireplace. I have a similar situation with my wood burning fireplace. I want to put glass tiles on top of the metal part? Anything would help.
