Installing dura rock over tub lip


I'm installing dura rock to an 1/8" above the bath tub lip. The dura rock hangs out over the tub lip about 3/8". What is the best way to fill the void behind the ceramic tile as it rests on the bottom ledge of the lip?

i would think the 1/8" is best left alone as the tile will easily span this lmo

Installing dura rock over tub lip


I stopped the dura rock 1/8" from the top of the lip on the tub. However when I place the ceramic tile over the lip there is a 3/8" void behind the bottom 2" of the tile. Does this void need something behind it or can I just put a bead of moisture resistant tub caulk at the bottom of first row of tiles. I hope this is clear. Maybe I'm approaching this from the wrong angle.
