Shaken or Stirred?
Not that long ago, the only Scotches you could buy in the US were blends. That began to change in the late 1970s, when Americans started to buy less whisky and more vodka. As a result, the blenders also began buying less whisky. In an attempt to spur sales, the distillers began bottling their single malts and marketing them directly to drinkers. Single malts have become so popular that many distilleries are now running around the clock and have stopped selling to blenders altogether.

It's a small area, so I wanted something fabulous! The counter is olive quartz, with chips of many shades, so after a while I realized only white would do, unfortunately none of the beautiful patterns I saw. When I showed the tile installer several choices, his eyes popped when he saw this one, so I knew it was the one. Can't wait until it's up.Maxine B on Mar 6, 2017This looks great as a backslash with our black & white granite countertop.H U on Aug 31, 2016I had been looking for tiles for months for a backsplash in my kitchen.

Can anyone refute this claim or give advice for overcoming obstacles?
How many more tiles do I need to buy?BEST ANSWER: It was very difficult. I wish I would've done it myself. The pro I hired was not that great and I think I could've done it better. Even though it was hard, I would've taken the time to work with it better. It looks great now, but originally was not in line. The pro used a very watered down thin set and no grout. It looks good, but I think I may put a watered down grout on it. The sheets are like 13x11 or so, can't totally recall. I would say you'll need at least 30-35% overage, especially if it's an unusually spot with fine cuts. If you can manage not cutting it at all, you'll be better off.What type of wall outlet plates did you use with this tile ?BEST ANSWER: Not sure of your question. The wall has two outlets. Both are duplex with three prongs. One has a USB slot.What is the thickness -- mm low and high?BEST ANSWER: overall thickness is 8mmInstallation instructions say it doesn't need grout yet even with a good thin-set the mess is showing through. Any ideas how to fix this? Also, should I use grout or caulk to cover top and corner seems?
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Glass 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. Glass is reflective therefore any inconsistencies in the substrate will result in a poor installation. For pools and fountains we recommend installing a mortar bed according to TCA P601-98. EXPANSION AND CONTROL JOINTS PER TCA EJ171-05 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 glass tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- This tile does not require grout. You would have to water down the thin-set a little bit and the excess thin-set will act as the grout line.
- Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
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.
