Shaken or Stirred?

Whiskey shortages in the U.S. have often led to increased demand for tequila and its sister spirit mezcal, as was the case during the Civil War, Prohibition, and World War II.

This glass tile is not only chocolate but reflects a warm copper color which looks so good with my café latte kitchen floor tiles and wood countertops. Very exceptional.

Beautiful tile. I just remodeled kitchen and installed a custom copper sink. Am planning to use as a backsplash along with a Linda Paul mural and they look fabulous together!

Can these 2x8 glass tiles be cut down to 2x2 and used as inserts with subway tile?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't say it was impossible, but it would be a giant pain and the edges would be jagged - these are made of glass. We were able to cut them though and put the jagged edges towards the wall so it worked for us. But I would think you'd be better off finding 2x2's that were already manufactured that way. Your tile installer would charge you a fortune to cut them into squares!! But these are awesome and look amazing in our kitchen!!!!
Installation
SUBSTRATE

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.
  • Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer. 
  • 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.
GROUTING
  • 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.
CUTTING

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.
