The bow isn’t a CC thickness as it won’t slide under it on a quality level used as straightedge but, it does bow some.

Ok, finally decided (I think) on my wall tile.

So, this seems like decent tile but, it’s not as flat as I would hoped as it has a lil bow to it but, not bad (less then credit card).It’s a 8x16 porcelain that measures 7 7/8 x 15 1/2.
I made a...

Zootjeff, photo in post #10 is that Flexcolor CQ?

You don’t see it CX?
I ain’t purity but, it should work.
Plus, I have a habit of always drying off shower walls with bath towel when done showering so, I reckon I’m golden.
