You are 6 simple steps away to completely transforming your space:
Step 1. Gently open your package and unravel your mosaic. The mosaic is mounted on a fiber mesh backing and wrapped with a protective film from the reverse. Gently remove the protective film without damaging the mesh and remove any excess glue. Should individual stones have become loose during shipment, glue them back using a solvent-based adhesive.
Step 2. Using your trowel, spread a thin layer of adhesive or white thin-set mortar across the surface you wish to tile. If you’re placing your mosaic on a vertical wall or ceiling, you can always glue it to a wooden board and secure the board to the wall. In the case of large wall installations, nailing little nails into the gaps between the stones for a stronger seal is recommended. If the mosaic is to be laid in a humid or wet room, the laying area must be made waterproof. A special sealing adhesive should be used.
Step 3. Gently place the mosaic and use the flat end of the grout float to ensure the mosaic is perfectly flat and well adhered to the surface. Remove any excess of mortar with a damp cloth.
Step 4. Wait for at least 24hrs for the mortar to dry out. Once the mortar is dry, moisten the tiles using a damp sponge, spread your desired grout to fill the spaces between tiles using your grout float. Wipe down any excess grout, first with a dry towel, then a wet one. (Before applying the grout, make sure to glue back in place any fallen stone using a solvent-based adhesive)
Step 5. Once dry (will take approximately 24hrs), apply a marble and stone sealer.
Step 6. Take a step back and admire the space you’ve just transformed.

Your mosaic has its very own fingerprint
Just like your fingertips, your mosaic will be unique in the world. There are two reasons for this:
1. Nothing’s set in stone. Yet. Before you buy, you can customize: For any surface: Turn it into a floor inlay or rug, wall decoration, backsplash, countertop or tabletop. For any space: Make it sparkle indoors or outlast sun, snow and cannonball splashes outdoors. For any style: Change the size, natural stone type and color.
2. All mosaics are not created equal. Each one is made of natural stones, hand-cut by our artists. This means that while your art will look like the image above, we can’t guarantee an exact replica. Your masterpiece will have slight variations in color and cut of the tiles that will make it truly one of a kind.
