Glass brick is a very light reflective material that can be used for any wall application and some floor applications.Since glass tiles have the ability to reflect and transmit light, certain types and colors of glass tiles may look too light when installed in a prescribed manner.However, if you want to achieve a different look with them, there are ways to darken the tiles.Transparent and translucent glass tiles need to be placed on a white background to show their true color.Therefore, it is generally recommended to use a white thin mortar when installing.The Thinset mortar also has a standard gray color, which darkens the color of the glass brick when mounted on it.The effect is subtle and in some tiles the color may become softer or softer and the whole darker.Especially light or dark glass bricks, the use of gray thin body mortar may show a more obvious effect.Transparent and translucent glass tiles show shadows, which darken if mounted on a less smooth surface.The normal installation of glass tiles includes smoothing the marks of the spatula before pressing the glass into the mortar.This helps to prevent any shadows or shadows that may darken the color of the tile.For mosaic glass tiles of about 5/8, as well as hand-and hand-cut glass tiles with uneven surface and color, the shadow generated by the tro knife mark will obviously dim the appearance of the glass once installed.Some glass bricks are called \"color\"Back, \"That means they put a layer of acrylic on the back of the tile.This backing gives the finished tile a clear color;The tiles themselves are usually completely transparent.In the case of a gap or scratch in color-Acrylic paint can be used to modify the color and hide these defects.The acrylic paint applied to the color backing causes the color tone of the finished glass to be slightly darker.The degree of darkness depends on the color of the current backing, the color applied to it, and the thickness of the original backing.Cement is mud.Fill the base material of the seam around the tile.It can also produce aesthetic effects on the final look of the tile work.Because the glass is transparent, it can display shadows or transmit colors from the things around it.Use white, off-White or colored mud matching glass tiles to prevent darknessColor mud that affects the color of the finished glass.To help dim the appearance of the tile, use the darkest color grouting used with the glass tile color scheme.The dark edges subtly darken the appearance of the whole unit.
