Rolling and Cutting Kneaded Clay: To make the basic frame of the ceramic tile, you need to create equal_sized pieces from the kneaded clay. Roll_out small pieces of clay, using the pin. Ensure that the rolled_out clay is at least 0ሑ_inches thick. Using a knife, cut the rolled_out clay in the required shape. The square shape is the easiest to carve and the most common shape for ceramic tiles. If you aren't sure about the uniformity of the squared clay pieces, use a ruler to measure each end.
How to Install Ceramic Tile __ Installing ceramic tile is easy with modern fast_setting mastics, sealants, and grout. Whatever style or size you choose to install, the principles are the same. Before you begin, you'll need a hammer, chalk line, level, saber saw with carbide blade (helpful but not necessary), rubber gloves, tile mastic, tile grout sealer, tiles, edging cap and two outside corner edge caps for ceramic tile, and a paint stirring stick or old toothbrush to use for forcing grout deeply into the tile joints. You can also rent or buy a grooved trowel, tile nippers, tile cutter, and rubber squeegee. Inspect the walls. They must be smooth and free of loose plaster, dust, or peeling paint. Read the mastic instructions; on new plaster or unfinished drywall, a primer may be necessary.
