Mexican Tile installation
Identify the wall center and use a carpenter's level to mark intersecting vertical and horizontal lines. Starting at the wall center above the vertical reference apply adhesive. Spread the glue on the wall with the notched side of trowel. Begin laying each mexican tile from the wall center vertically towards the wall end. Ceramic tiles on both wall ends should have the same dimensions. Firmly press each tile giving it a slight twisting motion. It will assure adequate contact with the wall. Since Mexican Tile and tile mural is hand cut slight shape differences are expected.

For bathroom and kitchen wall using the grout with waterproofing agent is recommended. Spread the material on the surface at 45 degree angle in each direction. Press firmly assuring it fills up all spaces between each mexican tile deep. Clean tile surface from any excess grout with a wet sponge and let it dry.
