    Hello everyone.
    Having spent a chunk of work-life battling for others decided to go it alone and get stuck into tiling full-time excuse the pun!. Covered a brief period plastering, however, found my home tiling projects far more enjoyable.
    I have a small job coming up involving Mosaic hmm.. Would appreciate a little advice in this area as well as a reliable cutting tool/tools for Glass Mosaic tiles these are 15 x 15 mm coming in 30.5 x 30.5 x 0.8mm sheets have curves to cut will be attempting not to make a total wreck of it:weary: Sure I'm going to have further questions and experiences to share throughout my journey looking forward to the next chapter..

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Asking for general advice on such a potentially complex subject won’t make it easy for members to advise you, you would probably need to be more specific.
    The mosaic, are they 0.8cm thick (8mm) or actually 0.8mm? :arrowup::arrowup:

    So they’re 15mm x 15mm x 8mm on a 30.5 x 30.5cm sheet?
    Mesh backed?
    Paper or cellophane faced?

    That’s awfully thick for such a small piece.
    And you say you have curves to cope with?
    As in what exactly?

    Yep they are chunky and tiny with a mesh backing
    Chromatic Purple Haze 15x15mm Mosaic Tile from a very well known retailer.
    Have a Toilet cistern to get around being asked not to remove hence enquiry for a decent cutter that will do the job.
