an interested in doing some mosaic work on concrete wall outside. Is
there a product that would work well for this? It needs to be able to
withstand winter and hot summer conditions as I am located in KS.
|No Days Mosaic Mesh allows you to build your mosaic on a horizontal
surface and then mount your mosaic vertically using thinset or mortar.
Hi, S ~
The best way to approach
the work you want to do would be to build your mosaic on mesh and then
mount on the wall using an appropriate thinset / mortar.
Our No Days Mosaic Mesh has a heat set adhesive that holds the tiles to
the mesh while you’re building the mosaic. When the pieces are set in
place, then you use thinset to attach it to the wall.
We have a YouTube channel and there’s a quick video on the process here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHExYFozByA&feature=share&list=PL2470E6E3D2CD6545
There’s an artist that uses our mesh all the time on
installations and she likes to place and then heat set the tiles on the
mesh. After the tiles cool down, she butters the back of the mosaic with
a thin layer of thinset, which helps to stabilize the mosaic and makes
it easy to install.
Hope this helps,
