Comb over the mortar, with the notched trowel grab the first piece of tile and press it onto the wall with a little twist gently press against it with a rubber float. If you need to make a cut to the second piece mark the tile and cut it with a wet soft mesh side, up, be careful with the sharp edges. Use nippers for small cuts apply the next piece the same way and use spacers if needed, keep installing the tiles working in small sections and make sure to check level frequently remember to leave an eighth inch gap at the countertop let the thin set dry for 24 Hours, another installation option is to use adhesive mats instead of thin-set just press peel and stick then it's on to the grout mix, the grout.
