How to Install a Tin Tile Backsplash
Looking for something unusual to spice up your kitchen? Install a tin tile backsplash. It will take less than a weekend and cost less than $100 in materials.
Brush the concrete bonding agent onto the bricks, this will help the stucco adhere to the brick. Allow it to dry at least 30 minutes.
Either purchase ready-made stucco, or mix concrete and sand together to make your own. Add a little of the bonding agent to the mix so it will dry quicker and stick better. It should have a toothpaste-like consistency.
With a notched trowel, run a series of grooves in the first coat of stucco. This will help the second coat to adhere better.
Use a straight, steel trowel to apply the second coat of stucco. The straight trowel will give you a modern, sleek look. For a rustic texture, run a bristle brush over the concrete. To get a smooth finish with just a little bit of subtle texture, use a trowel with a sponge attached.
