Glass Mosaic Tile and Thinset

I want to use a glass mosaic tile as an accent in my shower. The instructions on the mosaic says to use a white mastic as an adhesive. I know mastic is a definate NO in a shower. Is thinset ok to use? Would you have to thin it down a little?

Thanks for your help.

Hello Rogerto,
Welcome to the site.
What brand of mosaic are you using? Never heard of mastic being spec'd for such things. Mostly we use TEC Superflex White or Custom's MegaFlex. I would think Laticrete 254 Platinum would fall into the category of a suitable thinset as well.

If you use Mapei, go with Adisilex P10.
