Welcome back, Bill.

What is the failure that you're referring to? Is there a picture you can attach?

Use the manage attachments option box beneath the reply box (you may have to scroll down a bit) to attach a picture or tile.

Hi Bill. So I assume this mosaic is a mix of glass tiles and slate. I'm wondering if the slate tiles bonded okay? Regardless of what Schluter says, I would have used a modified thinset for the mosaic if it has glass tiles mixed in.
