Shaken or Stirred?

During World War II, reduction of consumption activists argued that soldiers should not be permitted to drink alcohol beverages. However, General George C. Marshall, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, insisted that such prohibition would be 'harmful to the men in the service."

Beautiful tile
James M on Nov 3, 2016
We really liked all 5 of the different samples we selected however the South Seas Pearls Mini Brick Pattern, for a backsplash, couldn't be more complimentary to our kitchen countertop, cupboards and floor.
Andrew H on Sep 28, 2016
It's a beautiful, shimmery, warm cream! Thank you Tile Bar!!
Sarah M on Sep 13, 2016
received 5 samples. This one stood out with the color of the granite counter tops and the rest of the kitchen décor, as well as with a mural we ordered, call "fried eggs" from Aristophanes murals. This will be a gorgeous eye catching one of a kind kitchen back splashes that we will enjoy for a lifetime.

very nice and unique tile. Also liked the pictures provided in the website to show how it looks installed. It would be nice to have a few more picture of the tile installed.

It is beautiful. Even prettier in person than on-line.
Duane B on Jul 24, 2015
Goes perfectly with my field tile for inside bath and shower niches.
Alexandra S on Jul 22, 2015
It is a beautiful tile and will make a great accent with the topaz and oyster white tiles.
Judith P on Jul 21, 2015
Selected this tile because it is very thin and the tiles are very small. This is the seond time I have purchased this - and I am very satisfied. Would recommend.
Stacy R on Jun 29, 2015
We purchased this to use behind the mirrors in two bathrooms in a beach condo. Hoping the colors will tie into the tile that is there until a full renovation can be done. this tile is beautiful and looks like the inside of so many shells we have acquired over the years.
Faith T on Jun 8, 2015
It's so beautiful and has such interesting colors.
Janis W on Jun 5, 2015
This is for the back splash in our beach house. What could be a better choice than real shells. Can wait to see it finished,
Mary S on May 6, 2015
Cause I like it. It is a neutral colour but is not boring.

Happens to go perfectly with tile selected for a shower redo.
Nancy V on Mar 9, 2015
First the web site is very easy to use, the staff are very helpful, and the South Seas Pearl mini brick tile is stunning and as a back splash, goes perfectly with my Crema Bordeaux Granite
Joanna D on Mar 7, 2015
To coordinate with our darker kitchen, with leathered black granite.
Kristen P on Mar 3, 2015
After receiving my sample, I have just placed my order and am so excited! There is a nice amount of shine/sheen to the tile and the color variation leans towards the creams and browns. We will be applying this around a new gas fireplace and using a slab of creamy polished quartz for the hearth. Used Tile Bar because they have great customer service!
Angela Q on Mar 3, 2015
After having been to dozens of tile stores and perused online sites, I still came back to this one. It's the perfect combination of colors for the backsplash in my kitchen.
Cheryl H on Feb 21, 2015
We have a natural maple top for our kitchen island bar and the honey-colored browns in this tile are gorgeous with the wood bar!

Beautiful tile
James M on Nov 3, 2016
Would you recommend this to install partially in a vertical section inside a shower? It says to not use in a swimming pool or somewhere it's submerge with water , what about in contact with water? Thanks, Ada
Ada R on Mar 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used the tile in built-in shelving in a full-tile tub surround, on the back wall across from the primary water wall. I have 4 body shower heads, a hand-held, and the rain shower directly above. I used a glass tile mastic and ensured it was properly grouted. The piece fit perfectly in the shelving, and I then built-up decorative 3" x 12" and custom cut tile pieces to keep it in. As long as there are no air pockets, wipe down the excess mastic, and grout it in - it should be fine.
What size are the samples?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: What I received was a good size - 9"x9"? 12"x12"? But it's been a couple of years so unfortunately I don't remember if that was the sample size or whether I ordered a single "tile" of each color to evaluate.
How is an open edge finished? Is there a pencil edge that could be used to finish the edge? Thanks!! Going to use this in my beach condo Reno!
Michelle P on Aug 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: you may cut the tile to complete the edge. I used a finishing edge that matched the surrounding but there are options in marble I did consider. at the corner where the 2 walls met my hubby used caulking and it looks good. tip: this is a very thin tile and not too easy to deal even for professionals. the adhesive seeps thru, make sure to use the proper trowel and ask around. it is gorgeous!!!
how thick are the tiles?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tiles are only about 1/8 inch thick. I used Bondera adhesive sheets to install them on my kitchen backsplash. The tile looks awesome! Order a sample before you decide.
Installation

STONE INSTALLATION

These instructions are meant to be a guide for most installations, under normal conditions. Please follow best practice instructions found in the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) 09300 Handbook for specific installation types.



MATERIAL INSPECTION

Due to the natural of the material no two pieces of natural stone are exactly alike. Natural stones are products of nature; therefore, variations in color, pattern, texture, and veining will occur. Verify all products before installation for any damage or defects such as chipped edges, broken pieces. No adjustment will be made after installation.

*Always use appropriate personal protective safety equipment when handling, drilling, cutting or grinding glass tile such as (but not limited to) eye, ear and hand protection.



SUBSTRATE

Before you start tiling, make sure that whatever surface the tiles are being installed to will be strong and structurally sound. Cement board, concrete or drywall is best, as these surfaces can handle the moisture of the tiling process. Plywood should be avoided, since the wood will warp with the added moisture and it will also be less waterproof, even after tiling.



INSTALLATION MATERIAL

Thin-Set
When setting tiles we recommend the use of polymer or latex modified thin set or medium bed mortar compliant with ANSI standard A118.4 and is recommended for use with marble tile.

 

Tools
3/16” or 1/4” square notch trowel should be used when installing our glass material and ridges should be smoothed down with the flat side of the trowel prior to fixing the tiles in the mortar bed.

 

Cutting
Use a wet-saw with a new, continuous rim diamond blade specifically designed for cutting marble. Do not use “turbo” or other notched blades designed for use with porcelain or ceramic as the teeth can cause a coarse cut, resulting in a heavily chipped edge.

Cut edges and corners will be sharp. Always be sure to smooth the cut edges manually with 200-grit wet/dry sandpaper.

Drilling
If possible, drill holes before installing tile. Drilling from both sides can ensure a cleaner finish if the hole will be visible after installation. Using a new diamond coring bit (for large holes) or spade bit (for small holes) with a diamond tip made for glass drilling will give the best results. Lubricating the bit and tile surface with a continuous spray of oil/water mix will prolong the life of bits and provide a better-finished edge. When possible, the use of a jig will ensure precise placement of holes to be drilled.

When drilling holes for anchoring bolts, plumbing or any other dissimilar material always ensure a minimum of 1/8” clearance around the item is provided to avoid cracking due to disparate expansion and contraction rates or stress transfer.

 

GROUTING

We recommend applying grout release prior to grouting, suitable for the respective stone and interior or exterior use, to the tile to facilitate cleaning and for protection against staining from contrasting color grouts. Grout joints should be packed full and free of all voids and pits. Excess grout should be cleaned from the stone surface as the work progresses, before the grout hardens. Do not use acids to clean off excess grout. Prior to grouting, test an area to make sure the stone surface will not scratch.

SEALING

After the stone is installed, and grouted, seal the stone with an appropriate high quality breathable stone sealer, to minimize water absorption, efflorescence, and potential staining. If necessary, a color enhancer may be applied to bring out the true color of the stone at any time after grouting. Follow sealer manufacturer’s installation instructions. Reseal tile when the stone gets darker or as needed.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

For normal care and maintenance of stone tiles, clean stone surfaces with a few drops of neutral cleaner, stone soap, or a mild liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Use a clean soft cloth for best results. Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks. Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar, or other acids on marble or limestone. Rinse the surface thoroughly after washing with the soap solution and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any abrasive cleaners.
