Back splash tiles for the kitchen


I would like to glue new tiles on the backsplash walls in my kitchen over top of the existing ones that are already there, they are ceramic. Is this possible, or do I have to remove the old tiles first?

I never heard of any one doing that---However, it could be done--You will need to scuff up the existing tiles a bit so the thinset has something to bite into----

Are any edges exposed? How would you treat that?----Mike----
