Flatten Wavy Walls
Dean says that one of the most important tips for any tile-setting job, including mosaics, is to start with a perfectly flat surface. Before you begin tiling, check the surface with a straightedge. If you find a dip in a wall, flatten it by screeding a layer of setting-type joint compound over it as shown here. For floors or walls in wet areas, use thin-set instead of joint compound. Let the joint compound or thin-set harden and you’re ready to set tile.
