    I am currently trying to silicone seal between my metro tiles and my worktop, but am having an absolute nightmare getting a good finish with the bevel edge of the tile. I was planning to use my fugi to get a nice finish but the bevel is just collecting the silicone, I've tried using a credit card but that isn't leaving the greatest finish either. I wish I'd have started with a half tile.

    Anyone have any tips?

    clean edge tape that is flexible enough to accommodate bevel- be patient to make straight line, use masking tape on worktop as well, apply silicone and don't be shy- use your finger!

    btw worse thing that people do about metro tiles- white tiles with black grout- if you haven't seen that try to imagine how it looks like in the wall corner where 2 tiled surfaces joins together :)
