To apply the mortar or the joint glue on the tile, make a paste with water with the glue, until you get the tile grout.

Once we have the grout prepared, with a rubber spatula, which is sold in any hardware store, we spread the glue of the chosen color for all the tiles, especially filling the joints.

Once the mortar for joints that we have spread on the wall is dry, we take a sponge and a bucket of water, and we are removing the dry mortar from the tiles.

We will do it slowly, because if we press too hard, we may also take the mortar from the joints, if they are not very dry.
