Came out just as I had envisioned in the design process!
Need patience to install ... lots of readjusting. Make sure all the adhesive is removed from between each tile before grouting since they aren't very thick.
Here are the products I used:
* Illumina Accent Mosaic Wall Tile
* Daltile Fantesa Cameo (6x6 Cream Squares)
* Requisite Metal Wall Decorative Accent 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" Menards online (https://www.menards.com/main/p-1444428415488.htm )

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nina Beautiful... can really do a lot with this!
I really love the look of this tile, I'm happy with the install. I did everything myself, so I can share a few things. First of all, the depth of the tile is short compared to field tile. I don't know why the manufacturers do this... why can't there be a standard? To make it flush with your field, you'll have to build it up with extra mastic, or do like I did and add the tile to a backing first and let dry flat; I used a perforated wood backing that was 1/16" thick (I added the holes to the wood, a lot of them so the mastic still got through after applying the tile sheets to the wall). If you need slightly more added backing, you can apply mastic to your field surface first and let it dry (pain in the rear to keep it just on the area you need and uniform depth), or you can apply the tiles to 1/8" schluter ditra (yes naysayers, this works!!!) first and dry flat for at least 24 hours, and then apply them to the wall. The single pieces in my mural I simply added last, and applied extra mastic. My application was also a little more difficult because I grouted these mosaics in a darker color than my field. I applied all tile to the wall first, then taped across the top of my border (these) tiles (tape was perpendicular to the wall) and grouted and let it dry for a couple days, then taped (masked) my border over the grouted area (tape was parallel to the wall) and grouted my field tiles in the lighter color. I let the light grout set for an hour or so, removed the tape from my border, and tried my best to remove any of the lighter color grout that may have bled under the tape. I wanted darker grout on the border to hide any possible leveling irregularities over the counter top. A couple other notes about my project... I will never use 2" by 2" on the diagonal again; it was a cutting nightmare, lol! My mural was loose custom order leaves; I arranged them myself and added the dog paws and accent tile. My next use of this umber tile will be to add a border to my kitchen floor where the tile meets the carpet in my living room... and goodbye carpet, hello hardwood!

Laying the floor in the laundry room is never fun, but with the tools and fun glass tile accents it made my choice hard. A little pricey for such small tiles but overall the finished product turned out much better than I anticipated. I was able to break apart the small tiles and use them as a filler when I found out my laundry room wasn't squared, huh, go figure! Only draw back is when the back gets wet, the tiles come off so leaving them outside uncovered is not recommended, lol.

Extremely satisfied with these.
Installation: Super easy. They go up in seconds, and the small tiles and mesh backing makes it so easy to cut to size when navigating corners, outlets, and fixtures.
Appearance: I ended up embedding a strip of these (cut in half lengthwise, so two tiles tall) in a ceramic Montagna Cortina backsplash. The subtle metallic hues really added a classy, decorative finish.
Can't recommend them enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rachel This mosaic tile is beautiful & durable.
The colors in this mosaic tile were a perfect match to complement the ceramic tile that we chose for our kitchen & breakfast nook. Because this mosaic tile has no specific pattern, it was very easy to install. It looks beautiful & is durable enough to be used as a floor tile, as we did to separate the two rooms. Love it!!

I used these as the "center" to my backsplash in the kitchen. They add the perfect balance of color and beauty!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeachChick Unique accent tile for back splashes. I like Janpanese Raku pottery and these remind me of that.
A subtle sheen that changes in different lights and picks up the color of whatever tile you place it with.
