    "Mesh backing lets you install the tiny tiles as a single sheet, flatten the ridges with the flat side of the trowel.
    Then press the tile into the thinset and move it side to side slightly for good coverage. Leave to dry then grout

    Hope this helps thanks Heath"

    "You can get a ridged stick-on back section that makes them easier to handle then add adhesive like normal."
