ceramic around bathtub


I want to install ceramic around my bathtub. this is my first time doing this. I am using 1"x1" on a 12"x12" mesh. I searched online, and didn't get any info about installing this kind of tile.

I have a 25lb bage of thinset to cover 70-90 sq-ft. how much thinset should I mix to start ? 1\2 or all, I don't want for it to dry up before I'm done.


Thanks in advance : Gary

I would mix the whole bag but I have done a lot of tile. I don' t know what your experience is but if you are new to tiling I would defiantly do the 1/2 bag at a time or maybe even smaller batches.
