Make enough diagonal cuts next to the selected starting point to tile.

Once you \'ve set up this starting line, the rest of the work is like setting up tile squares, but you need to be more careful and check to make sure they are straight as you don\'t have a straight line to look.

Let the glue dry for at least 24 hours.

Lay on the tiles and enter the seams that work in the small area so that the mud does not dry too fast.
Using a damp sponge, wipe excess mud from the surface of the tile while smoothing the seams.
Let the mud dry to light smoke and wash again with clear water.
Buffer with a dry towel if needed.
