|How do I install the mosaic ?|
The mosaic is supplied directly from the factory, glued to a fiber mesh backing, ensuring that each of the hand-cut marble mosaic tiles remains firmly in place during shipment.
Installing mosaic is very similar to installing standard ceramic tiles. There is no need for a professional to install the mosaic but we strongly recommend one for larger pieces.
To install the mosaic on the wall or ceiling, first glue it to a wood panel then fix the wood panel to the wall.
|What are the accepted payment methods ?|
We accept bank transfers, credit card payments, western union, paypal, escrow.
|What do you recommend that I use to seal my mosaic?|
Sealing your mosaic is strongly recommended as this creates a barrier between the stone and the dirt and stains. We recommend that you enhance it as well, to make the colors more vibrant. Sealing, however, does not protect your piece from stains, therefore any staining that comes into contact with your mosaic should be removed immediately. We recommend using Miracle Sealant Company products because they are widely considered the best available and are easy to apply.
Use a sponge, paintbrush or roller to spread the sealant evenly over the surface of the stone. Traffic and use will affect the need to reseal a surface but resealing annually is wise. Gnosis Tesserae recommends the following:
511 Seal & Enhance seals your mosaics and brings the natural stone colors up, making it more vibrant. Miraclean is a concentrated cleaner developed specifically for marble, terrazzo, granite, tile and masonry surfaces. If required, Gnosis Tesserae can offer to seal your mosaic when you order it, for an additional cost.
