Fitting And Sealing Pebble And Stone Mosaic Tiles

Red, black, honey and white river peggle mosaics
For stone tiles like pebble mosaics, marble and travertine

  1. The stone pieces are glued to a flexible backing so you can glue them in place using tile adhesive like you do with other tiles.
  2. Seal the stone tile after the adhesive has completely dried. This action will prevent the pebbles and stone tiles from absorbing the grout color. Allow the sealer to dry.
  3. Apply grout to the pebble tiles by pushing it into the spaces between the pebbles. Work slowly when doing this to fill in all gaps. When you have finished the entire area will be properly covered with grout.
  4. Allow the grout to set up and dry for around 20 minutes.
  5.  Sponge away the grout from the surface of the stones. The sponge should be damp, not dripping wet and dont push too hard, you dont want to remove the grout from between the stones. Rinse the sponge regularly.
  6. Leave the grout to dry for 24 hours.
  7. Apply sealer to the grout and stones.
