Arabesque 3/4" clay tiles.

So here is the project a fireplace


And here is the tile.


And it drinks water like a drunk at 3pm.


So here is the plan so far. Soak the tiles. Ultralite mortar.we will figure the grout after. A custom cement mix or classic ultracolor S.
And sadly the plywood has to stay. No durock or gyprock.

Any input on the cement? The absorbtion of these tiles?

And the patern sould be this.
There is going to be a wood strips on the corners to make the corner. And it sould be "full to full"

Hi Alex,

I've been trying to figure out your links. They seem to always go to the photo showed. It should be that the only thing that you need is the "manage attachements" button below. If you've discovered some sort of glitch please let us know.
