Ceramic tile over glass block

My title pretty much says it all. My shower is ceramic tiled on 3 walls and the floor with a glass block 1/2 wall. I want to give it an updated new look. I understand I can tile over the old tile, but can I tile over glass block? If so, do I need to first add a layer of cement board?

Others may have a solution for that, but I don't think that would be a real good idea.

Welcome, Sue.

Think I gotta agree with Ryan on that, but you might wanna contact the folks at MAPEI and ask if their Echo Prim Grip would be suitable for that application.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I agree with the others, no way would I tile over glass blocks.
