How to attach glass tiles to a mirror?


What kind of adhesive would you recommend I use to attach small 1" square tiles on a mesh to a mirror? I am trying to make a frame of tiles around a mirror on the wall in my bathroom. Thanks!

I dab of clear silicone caulk on each tile would work.

My recommendation depends on how many tiles are involved. If you have few enough that a dab of something on the back is not too tedious. That would be fine. However I would recommend construction adhesive over over silicone. It will have better holding power. I often use PL polyurethane construction adhesive.

If there are going to be too many tile to dab the back of each, I would mask the portion of the mirror that will remain visible and spread tile mastic with a 1/4" plastic V notch applicator.

I hope this helps.
