What adhesive and primer should i use?
I have walls in my kitchen recently re-plastered and painted ( two layers of Dulux trade and Dulux kitchen paint). Now I would like to tile lower section over the worktop with glass mosaic tiles. Can you recommend what kind of primer should I use and what adhesive will be the best for this task? Can I use any grout (it is a pain to find suitable colour) and do I need to seal grout?
You can use pva to seal the wall before you start to tile if you want it's not a must your adhesive should be normal wall adhesive and you don't need to seal the grout even thou you can buy sealer for it again if you would like to personal choice.

Hi do not use pva as primer for tiling as this is not fit for purpose you can prime with sbr like bal bond if the walls are painted sand back to the plaster and if using glass mosaic you will need to a powder mix adhesive.
