To apply mortar or grout to the tile, you need to make a paste with water with the glue, until you get a grout for the tiles.

After preparing the grout, use a rubber spatula, which is sold in any hardware store, to spread the adhesive of the color selected for all tiles, especially the filling of the joints.

After the grout that we smeared on the wall dries, we take a sponge and a bucket of water and remove the dry mortar from the tiles.
