The need to glaze and re -firing disappears. Clinker. The unique type of this ceramics is created when processing clinker clay with high temperatures. Porous. Formed due to shrinkage of the basis during firing.

An adhesive solution is prepared, with which ceramics will be attached to the wall. For this they use ready -made dry mixtures. They are previously bred in water in such quantities that there is enough work for 20 minutes. They do not cook a lot of mixtures at once, as it freezes quickly.
Next, laying is done. The place of the first element (the corner of the room or the interior item) is determined). Then from glued tiles, which is aligned vertically and horizontal, a row is laid out.
Metal stripes are used for more accurate laying. The gap between the tiles is installed using plastic crosses of different widths.
