Accent Build Out

Following is how I build out for an accent/deco strip. Works for most cases, and has proven effective and efficient for me. Set your field tile and leave the predetermined space out for your accent strip. Take and burn in your thinset and follow it up with the notched side. Next fill in the space with some fat mud or type s masons mix. Set some screed sticks for your accent tile plus bond coat thickness. Screed it out with a straight edge and follow it out with a jig screed if you have it. Spread some thinset over it and place your tile, take anything/something to ensure the tile sits flat to the field tile. Adjust your joints and done.
