What support to use?

You can install the tiles on any properly prepared surface as long as it is flat, stable, firm and dry.
If the support is too porous, use a coat of primer for porous surfaces, which will prevent the glue from drying too rapidly and allow better adhesion of the tile.
If the support has irregularities, level the surface using a coat of wall smoother.
If the surface is too smooth, coat with a special primer for smooth surfaces.

How to cut the tiles?

These tiles are earthenware and cannot be cut with a simple tile cutter. An electric tile cutter must be used together with a very sharp diamond disc.

What glue to use?

Use an appropriate glue for the support. In most cases you can use a ready-to-use glue paste (a tub of PAREXLANKO or MAPEI, for example). This glue is applied with a spatula. For humid areas (for example, in the shower), add a special waterproof additive. Epoxy glue can also be used. This contains resin and is perfectly waterproof.

And the tile grouting?

The grouting provides the finishing touch to your wall decoration and also ensures that it is waterproof. Wait at least 24 hours after gluing the tiles before you apply the tile grouting. Use a special product for ceramic tiles. This is usually a powder that is mixed with water to make a paste that can then be used. It is applied using a rubber grout float.
For the bathroom, a special waterproofing additive is recommended to ensure that there is a perfectly waterproof joint. You can also use an epoxy grouting (MAPEI, PAREXLANKO, WEBER, DESVRES etc).
White is the colour usually used for grouting but there is a whole range of possible colours. (WEBER etc). “String” and “very pale grey” go very well with the Mexican white and the red.
Use narrow spacers between the tiles. This way you will avoid excessive visible amounts of dark grouting, which could alter the colour of the tiling.
