Need input please! (Mosaic on tile)


I just finished tiling the shower and instead of running a pencil trim or some type of quarter round along the space between where the tub and tile meet I was going to run a 1" mosaic all around. My question is can I use an Armstrong tile adhesive of some sort to glue the mosaic to the tile? Then afterwards grout and seal... Thx in advance for any input!!

Generally caulking is used between the tub and the tile (as well as any other change of plane).
Do you have a pic?

I don't understand why you would install a 1" tile in that location. As a matter of fact, the other 2 tile situations aren't appropriate.

You might want to tell us what you did to the walls for the tile prep.
What material backer?
What type of tub?
How close to the tub did you install the backer?
A small tile wouldn't have the support at the tub bottom as the substrate is off the tub surface by 1/4-3/8". If you follow the instructions with some tubs, the substrate could be a full inch off the surface.
Use thinset for adhering the tile.

It's not for you to understand. Obviously you haven't seen may bathrooms in your lifetime. And the mosaic will be going on top of the tile not below it.
Why is it that no one on here like's to answer a simple question? All I asked was what kind? And yes I can take constructive criticisim, but your last paragraph wanting to know everything about how and what was used to put the tile on is not needed. That part is done. And it was done right. If I had a question about that part I would have asked don't you think?
Like I said everyone on here goes on a long string. See the question was not what would look good the question was what kind of adhesive to use. CAULK will be applied last. So thanks for that tid bit of info

BTW Ron thinset will not work tile to tile. If you read it right the first time you would see that the mosaic is gonna be placed on top of tile... Not on cement board! Already found the answer I was looking for else where. Thx for the lengthy post

hehehe Ron!!! You got in trouble for trying to be thorough. That a$$ eating she gave you is what you get for trying to help answer a stupid question. No good deed goes unpunished my friend.

That's the kinda chit that happens to me around here ever so often.

Okay - moving on. LMAO but moving on!

After reading this thread, now my wife wants to glue an iron skillet to our kitchen wall. What kind of glue would I use to do that?

Bud--standard 'Frying pan and Skillet glue'---It's next to the Mosaic TOP glue at the twilight Zone Home Center.

Tile to tile? I don't know. Silicone? I wonder what answer the OP found while waiting for an answer here? Maybe she will share when she's done being PO'd at Ron.

Yeah... It is hard to keep people happy with mindless answers and rants

I heard there were a bunch of HILLBILLIES on this forum. I guess my source was right! BTW the skillet sounds like a good idea... You must live out in the styx somewhere... That's the last of my thoughts on this topic. Toothless hillbillies aren't worth the time! See ya Sallys!
