    Hi,

    I'm tiling a wall in a Bathroom. Unfortunately, it bows in. It's only a small width I am tiling, perhaps 900mm wide, all the way up the wall. Think of a 'half-moon'.

    Now, I need to essentially 'pack-out' the wall a bit by, at it's worst point 30mm... I don't want to use my expensive tubs of moisture resistant adhesive. So, I was thinking...

    Could I mix up some Bonding, or perhaps Hardwall Adhesive and use that to tile directly onto ? Bonding sticks to everything... I presume it's going to stick to ceramic tiles...

    Any thoughts.

    Yes, I wish the wall was straight and true, but it's not...

    It's new plaster. The plaster has had an acryic sealant painted on.

    Thanks y-all.

    you can use bonding as long as you let it dry out properly and use an acrylic primer before tiling.
