What adhesive can I 'get away with' for small area of glass mosaic tiles?

    Hi all,

    As above, I have a very small area to tile in glass mosaic.

    Wall length - 1500
    Wall height - 392
    Sheets are about 300 x 300
    Mosaics on sheet - 23 x 47 (7mm thick)

    So just over 0.5 sq/m in total

    I've seen some of the recommended adhesives, but the quantities are large and therefore expensive, I just need enough for a very small area - any advice.

    Also, as these tiles are staggered, I need to cut lots of edges, I was going to get a basic £20 manual tile cutter, but then have also seen these glass cutting pens - which is the best for quite a small job?

    Thanks all!

    Might not get a clean cut with the mosaics especially being glass.

    The manual tile cutter will provide the leverage to break the mosaics.

    I have also altered the pattern a bit taking out a few pieces of mosaic.
