We have these 2"x4" tumbled marble subway tiles that come in 1 sq. ft. sheets. I am just wondering about how you make the cuts?
Here's a picture for reference, I used finishing nails to hold it up, lol
Specifically around wall outlets, my thought was to dry lay the tile over the area, mark the individual tiles where they need to be cut, pull them off the mesh they are glued to, make the cuts with the wet tile saw then put them back on the wall.
If this is what people normally do, do you cut out the mesh before putting the cut tiles on the wall or do you just add more mortar on top of the mesh?
And you can see where the 2 sheets match up you have to interleave the mesh and tiles, this is hard enough to do without mortar on the wall, do you leave the mesh on here too?
Lastly, do you backbutter the wall tiles like you would a floor tile?
