Tile mortar Help
I am putting 12x12 porcelain tile on the wall surrounding my tub. I'm using 1/4 x 1/4x 1/4 vesabond mortar but I can't the consistency right. My first day, I made it too thick like thick peanut butter. Had a hell of a time spreading it so today I made it more like a paste. Its a lot easier to spread but its not thick enough on the tile and so I ended up buttering the tile instead which is quite messy. So my question is what am I doing wrong?
