Mosaic Tile tape is an essential supply and helps to enhance your space and ease your job.

How To Apply?
•Firstly clean with a cloth and dry the tile.
•Peel of the tape with your hand and roll it and apply it on the front side of the tile.
•Do not apply any glue to either of it.
•To assure adequate adhesion it is necessary that you gently give the tiles a good rub from over the tape.

Ways To Prevent Tiles from Moving:

There are some simple methods which need to be skillfully used:

•Spray the adhesive directly on the top of the table or on the card board.
•Make use of a masking tape instead of the adhesive to do the job. The only problem existing with its use is that you will have to source the biggest masking tape.
•Once the adhesive or the masking tape is in place you need to take a piece of wood which is a little bigger in length as well as the width from the original pattern.
•Skip a tile on to the corners and prepare a jig pattern until the whole space is full.
•Make use of a tape and place it neatly on the jig.
•The jig then needs to be flipped over.
•The pieces are now ready to make a mosaic tile or a border as per your choice.
•Now the pieces have to be placed with the backs of the tiles adjacent to the Tape adhesive.
•Once the pattern is through, you will need to apply the Tape on the top of the tile.

Making a Mould out of Wood and Glue Tile Separators

•This allows you to create the basic pattern to make a number of designs of the same pattern.
•When you will make use of a mould and then glue the tile separators it will be easier for you to assemble the pattern and apply the tape.
•You can also set up a workbench and mount a tape dispenser mounted horizontally on the side.
