About mosaic tile medallions:
These beautiful tile medallions can be used indoor or outdoors. They are amazing quality and durability
Tile medallions arrive mounted on a mesh backed sheet.. They must be grouted. Mesh backed mosaics depend on the application of grout for their strength and resistance to the elements. You can use sanded or unsanded grout. It is recommended that you use a professional tile installer who has installed mosaics.
High relief accent tiles, liners chair rails and bases installed above a cook top, outdoor kitchen or fireplace must be set 5 to 6 inches above and 3 to 4 inches back from heat source and have a minimum 2 inch set back from the profile (face of the tile).
Installed tile must use a high-grade thin-set mortar such as Custom EBMLite™ Epoxy Bonding Mortar. If not using mortar, construction adhesive such as SikaBond® may be used.
Tip from Linda Paul : You can use a cake icing bag or a disposable squeeze bottle to create a thin filling of grout between the stones. Smooth out the grout with your finger or small piece of wet sponge. Make sure you wipe off all excess grout and do not allow grout to dry on mosaic surface or metal accents. GoJo hand cleaner works well to polish the metal accents
A sealer is recommended for the stones after installation. A sealer/enhancer really brings out the color of the stones
