  • Irina On the same principle as a cake decorating thingy. I tend to work in rows of tesserae. I mix up a small amount of thinset, put it into a sandwich ziplock bag. Twisty tie the top and snip off one corner. That way I can squeeze out a bead of thinset and set a row of tile then go on to the next row. The thinset lasts a long time in the bag, too. Gives me lots of working time.
