While it can sometimes be done, it is not generally recommended.

Moved this for you---

We need much more information---those small mosaics were sometimes set in a deep bed of concrete---other times buildes just stuck them to the plywood or masonite with mastic--

How are yours set? How old is the installation? Any loose tiles or bad grout?
