Shawn, I do occasionally when I have heavier days. I’m a cheapskate when it comes to taking care of myself though, quality setting materials over safety glasses and gloves. I did finally get dust shrouds and respirator masks.

Chris, nitrile gloves will be your best friend and well worth the money. And if you were really pinching pennies you could reuse them if you didn't rip them on the previous day. Don't buy the cheapest ones you can find the are turds and not even worth using. My mom gave me some, no idea where she got them but they were thin and ripped just putting them on. I threw them away because they were so frustrating that I didn't even want them as a back up

I find 14 mil latex gloves to be a bit better, nitrile for chemical handling and latex for general use.

Even the heavy duty nitrile don't last long enough

Wouldn't recommend no gloves, only a matter of years or the wrong thinset before any cement contact will cause dermatitis. Cement is a sensitiser, the more contact, the greater the chance of an allergy.. Sigh

I have used these for longtime. I get them tight so I can really feel what I am doing

I'm all about those 5 mil gloves from harbor freight, 7.99 for 50 then bust out a 20% coupon.

When you get into crazy shaped tiles, like these fish scales, cut a thin plywood jig or two to use on the tile saw. This way you can keep the cut square with the layout of the pattern.

We cut the curves in the plywood with a jig saw.

Davy, I’m sorry, I was thinking you also cut the tiles to that shape too. Wondering how you got such smooth finish.

No, I didn't make the tiles. They came from Ann Sacks this shape.

Water jetting achieves similar finishes, if ever asked :-)

The pros will know this but in case a DIY'er shows up, nearly all patterns repeat in the layout. With a small backsplash, I would probably free hand most of this pattern but I have about 200 sq ft to install in a shower and on bath walls. I like to mark lines to keep me consistent.
