Shining Clay Tiles: Allow the baked clay tiles to cool. Dust off any debris formed due to the crusting. Pour some of the glossy tile sealer into a paint tray. Dip a brush with lamb wool bristles into the tile sealer solution. Coat the clay tile, using light strokes. Allow the first coating to dry. Wipe the tile with a dry cloth. Apply more coats of the sealer if you need more gloss.
The space between the tiles should be uniform. Use spacers if your tiles don't come on mesh sheets. The larger the tile the larger the space should be between them. Some do_it_yourselfers will make the mistake of pushing tiles too close together to reduce grout lines. Without enough surface area, grout won't bond well and can fail prematurely, leaving room for leaks and water damage. It's also very important to let the adhesive cure fully.
