View Full Version : 1/2" x 1/2"mosaic ceiling

Part of this job is the 87 square foot ceiling, greenboard, which is to be entirely covered with these real pretty 1/2" x 1/2" highly domed, highly glazed porcelain mosaics. I've never installed tiles smaller than 2 x 2's on a ceiling before. Do I have to whip out my creative jig-building skills?

use a sheet of plexiglass or see thru plastic to install these on the ceiling or you could use plywood, but something to see through and support them makes it easiest or a piece of cardboard or a magazine.

You can use something like a mud hawk that is slightly bigger than the mosaic sheets and press them in

A neoprene float might work nice.

Search for "trask" on here.. Pretty sure he posted pics of the ceiling installation with mosaics in his personal bathroom
