I purchased a 16 tile mosaic in Portugal and I'd like to mount and frame it to hang indoors. Any suggestions on what to mount it on and what adhesive to use? Thanks Margie
 
Hi Margie, and welcome to the G.
I use Hardi-board and tile cement regardless of where they will be displayed. I grout the tiles and seal the grout as if they were a permanent installation, then wrap a frame around that.
This will be heavy, so an industrial strength hanging system needs to be incorporated into the framing.

Best of luck.

Thank you! I was not planning to grout in between just for a more rustic look. I appreciate the advice.
