    Well let's see what type off mosaic it is then.....

    Op,can you let us know please!!!!....


    Green star.....what a fiver a tub.....!!!....sums it up doesn't it,at that price?..

    It's s h I t.....prceramics...
    If your going to do it...do it right,with the correct and best materials you can use....ohh and don't forget to rib the walls,...then smooth with the straight edge off your 3mm trowel,patt with your Marshall town grout float and get them flat...panel pins to help with slippage as well....


    Everyday is a schoolday...... ;)
