Back light Glass Tile
 
Any Ideas On How To back light Glass Tile? IE Does Translucent Thinset Exist?:(

This better be a high paying job---because you will need to remove the tiles from the backing in order to avoid seeing the mesh---I suggest you contact the makers of epoxy resins--that will work for you---epoxy resin will bond glass to glass--

you may need to grind the backs of the tiles so no voids remain when epoxied to the glass backer---grout could flow under the tiles if you don't--

Are you committed to this or just checking out the possibilities?
