Instarmac brands used to create bespoke mosaic masterpiece

A community project headed by mosaic artist, Tracy Cartledge has been completed using Instarmac adhesive and grout.

Chorlton Central Church commissioned the striking external focal point to be designed by Tracy, who holds weekly mosaic classes at the church. Manchester based tiler and Instarmac advocate, Andy Carroll was asked to support the mosaic installation with his expertise and product knowledge.

Extended set tile adhesive, UltraTile ProFlex SP+ES was used to fix the mosaic tiles creating a piece which was inspired by a Bible passage centered upon the themes of peace and harmony.  This adhesive is a firm favourite of Andy’s, boasting a two hour pot life, an application thickness of 3-20mm and a S1 classification making it ideal for use on timber floors.

Flexible grout Granfix MAXIGROUT XTRA was used to finish the piece off.  This product is available in a choice of nine colours including Tracy’s selected Grey. It boasts mould and water resistant properties, and can be used with underfloor heating.  MAXIGROUT XTRA is fast setting and suitable for wall or floor joints up to 20mm.

Members of the local community are now enjoying the stunning detail and vibrant colours of the mosaic feature.
