Shaken or Stirred?
Drinking lowers rather than raises the body temperature. There is an illusion of increased heat because alcohol causes the capillaries to dilate and fill with more warm blood.

The sample of Bianco Polished ceramic pencil liner is not glazed all the way to the edge. What product do you recommend?BEST ANSWER: Use the Metal edge by Genesis. Comes in all different sizes and colorsDoes this tile require a special thin set?BEST ANSWER: I used a regular thin set for installation on walls and slanted ceiling for a bathroom under the stairs. I had no problem with the sheets detaching from the walls or ceiling due to their weight. Just make sure that the thin set is still fairly moist (hasn't skimmed over) before sheet installation. This can be somewhat awkward since you have to carefully fit the sheets together. I found that applying a sheet and a quarter thinset for the length of a row of sheets worked well. It gave me enough time to get the row of sheets in place and then smear the thinset for the next row far enough away from the previous row so I wasn't concerned with smearing the cement getting into the tile spaces of the recently laid row.When will this tile be available again?BEST ANSWER: This tile is scheduled to be back in stock on or around 8/19/16. If you click on the "notify" button right under where it says "out of stock" you will be notified when it becomes available again.Do these tiles come individually or on a mesh sheet?BEST ANSWER: They are individual. You get 5 for a square foot.Is this a stark white tile? I am looking to pair it with cabinets painted Benjamin Moore's Linen White and would like to know a description of the shade of white, thank you.BEST ANSWER: It is pretty white. I wouldn't say Bright White though. It also is more of a casual feel than the picture shows due to being actual clay so there are very slight imperfections. I think it would be a nice contrast to your Linen white.Because the tiles are so closely fitted, do you still recommend grouting?BEST ANSWER: You would defiantly still want to grout to prevent anything from getting between your tiles. Use a non-sanded grout with a grout shield additive for the best results.

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION
- To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
- Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
- The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
- Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
- Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
- Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
- Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.
- It is recommended to use non-sanded grout.
- It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as our MP90
