Mesh used to hold tiles together

Hi

My name is Kevin.

I'm needing some information. I'm trying to create a mosaic design with tile and was wondering if anyone has a link to someone or somewhere that I can buy the mesh used to hold the tiles together.

Thank you.

I don't have a link to the mesh you need (probably can use the reinforcing mesh sold with waterproofing liquids), but you can use Kerdi-mat or Kerdi-band. Stretch the Kerdi onto a piece of plywood, then thinset the mosaic to the mat using thinset. When it cures, cut the Kerdi from the plywood and apply it to the wall. This works best in small sections, say 6 x 12 or so inches.

It is a fiberglass sheet that is used most of the time. I use something similar in concrete countertop fabrication, we call it "fiberglass scrim". Here is a link to some you can order by the square ft. It is a little heavier than what you normally find with tile, but will still work. If you search around you may be able to find some with a tighter weave if need be.

Where do you live? Many major cities have mosaic supply stores that could really use your business. I did get my unglazed porcelain on closeout online, but all my supplies and tools came from the local place. So what kind of mosaic are you doing? Mine is a Roman theme.
