Glass Backsplash Tile – Glass tiles are often used in kitchen countertops because of their style, versatility, and properties that reflect light. Because they do not require the use of a saw for expensive slabs to install, many homeowners can put them on themselves. While the sheets pass up to 12 inches at a time, making their installation simple, the many lines of the grout between the small tiles can seem intimidating to fill. Glass grout mosaics very similar to larger tiles, with the exception that the entire installation must be covered in grout to avoid the loss of any of the joints.
Wait at least 48 hours, after installing the glass mosaics, to ensure that the mortar has dried. Glass is a non-absorbent material. Pick up a fist size portion of the grout with sand at the end of an epoxy rubber trowel and press it onto the tiles. Turn the float closest to 90 degrees from the back wall and scrape the entire surface of the tiles.

Allow the grout to dry for 10 minutes and then work a lightly moistened sponge grout in a circular motion over a small section of the tiles. Wait two hours then polish the surface of the glass with a soft cloth to remove the mist from the grout. Fill the corners and right angles of the installation with a thin layer of sand mastic that matches the colored grout.
