Tile over tile


I'm planing on tileing 12 x 12 porcelain over 1 1/4 ceramic tiles in my bathroom. Would the versabond be okay , or should I use the flex bond?

Are you sure that those mosaic are good to go over? They are often 'builders specials--masic set over 1/4" plywood---Bad news.

If they are properly set--I suggest using a two part --unmodified mixed with liquid laxex--Kerabond and Keralastic by Mepei is one example---also good to scratch the tiles with 36 grit sand paper first.
