This is to be embedded into a new kitchen backsplash, as a stripe. Each 12 x 12 square will give me 10 linear feet (three shell height). Back splash is 17 feet long)J O on Oct 9, 2015How big are samples?BEST ANSWER: The sample is about 3" x 6" on a cardboard backer. Plenty big enough to determine how it will look.I'm interested to know if these shell tiles could be used outdoors on a post? We don't get lots of rain but it does freeze (to zero several times each winter, sometimes colder). Also, if no grout is used, can the adhesive stuff be tinted so it isn't so awful-white?BEST ANSWER: Yes this tile can be used outdoors. Grout isnt used as the chips are mounted tightly together - you wouldn't need to worry about the adhesive peeking out.

- To avoid affecting the color of glass tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
- This tile does not require grout, you would have to water down the thin-set a bit more, the excess thin-set will act as a grout line.
The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
