    Default Glass Mosaic Tiles

    Hi everyone
    I purchased some glass mosain tiles on matting to use as a boarder to existing tiles. However having received them the edges have overspray of the backing colour. I did not want to use a tile edging but how can i clean the edges up? I have tried scraping with a stanly blade, whitesprit but cant remove the paint. Is it some kind of resin?
    Any ideas
    regards Mark

    Hi Mark and welcome..

    It most likely be as you say and the colour bonding used to give the glass colour that shows face side.

    It is unusual to see this.. are the edges that are within the sheets the same as you can cut the mosaics to size(strips) and use the good edges upwards that can be seen.

    Thanks for the reply Dave
    The strips are only 2 tiles high, so can not do that. I'm a bit hacked off to be honest lol. Any more options
    Mark.

    It is only the dark grey tiles causing the problem the light ones are fine?

    That is glue from the netting.... use a small amount of glue residue remover and a blade..

    Any chance of returning tiles as i think they will still show marks when grouted in the field .That's a lot of over glue

    It's on all of them from i can see... if you want them then it can be done but it would be easier to just re-choose as above Jay sez.. return them.

    Thanks for the replys guys.
    It diffently is only on the dark tiles the light ones are fine. Its not glue as i can pull the netting back and remove the glue that holds it on.
    Must be the resin or whatever it is used to colour the tiles.
    reckon i will have to return them or use a edging strip.
