Has Anyone Tried Doing Mosaics On Pal Tiya Premium?
Yes we have had artists push mosaics, shells and glass into the product. Due to the microscopic shrinkage, these hold very well and look amazing!
The shrinkage once cured is less than one-thousandth or 0.087%. Essentially microscopic.
Note: some round sided bead or cabochon tiles can be placed, grouted and finished in the first structural coat. If the tiles have straight sides, these must cure overnight in the adhesive coat before grouting.
Here's how to use Mosaics with PTP:
One of the great strengths of Pal Tiya Premium, it can be the base sculptural layer, the adhesive layer and the grouting layer for 3-dimensional sculptural mosaics. Typically these are three different and distinct materials.
Unwrap and perform a final polish of the tile surface with a dry cloth. Burn off any further raised fibers. Allow to strengthen for another day.
