That thinset mortar will be fine for your applications.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Little by little...

My cut around my niche was just too off and I pulled those two tiles off. Wow - If those two are indicative of how those tiles are secured - I'm all good.

Four hours later - I chiseled and scraped and bled and swore a couple of times. I cleaned it all and have completely repainted with RedGard.

In the process, I nicked one of the adjacent tiles pretty good. They are ceramic tiles and my nice gray/white tiles, now has a 1/4" x 1/2" brown/red gash.

My question: Is there any such "touch up paint"? An off grayish touch up would be better than the red clay look!

Thanks for any help!
Toni

Finished project

I'm very happy with the detail that I went through to make this a 100% solid installation! Far from perfect but we love the improvement.
I did every single piece of work myself - teardown to studs and complete rebuild, including the cabinetry.
I got so much helpful information from this site - I'm very appreciative!
