test tiling

Hello and thanks for the paint info, for fun I did a test using both a mastic and modified thinset - and I think the reason ppl use the mastic here is the open time of the adhesive, between the warm dry air and the moisture absorbing Cbu the thinset starts to skins over very fast - this is what I found doing the test tiling, thinset was sknning over befor I was finished with this small area while the mastic was still workable.

I would like to use the thinset how can i get more open time after spreading could i use a spray bottle and mist it with water ? what are the draw backs of using the mastic - is it waterproof when cured ?
