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?
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.
Swapping them, great idea if you have loads of them, I had a similar problem with glass tiles on mesh, it was was semi transparent, white glue, don't think it was pva, though) and I have a bottle of nail varnish remover just for that purpose in my studio, worked very well, instantly really, so worth a try, even if it just to know for furture reference
Ah, different stuff then, obviously, I have never seen grey glue like the one in your pics. Considering its colour and the colour of your tiles maybe it is leaked through glass paint after all, that would need thinners then, I reckon. Better to change them if you can, what a nuisance for you, good luck
