freestanding tile mural backing
SF Bay Area
about Next Gen 1/4 in. x 3 ft. x 5 ft. Cement Board on
October 28, 2015
I have several pieces of glazed ceramic tiles that I want to assemble into a 'painting' that will be hung on a fence. I live in the SF Bay Area, and will never see freezing temperature. The finished 'painting' will be about 36" by 18" and the tiles are irregularly shaped, each approximately 45 to 50 square inches. Can I use Durock board for this purpose? 1/4" or 1/2"? Do I need to put the board over an outdoor grade plywood, or will the board be strong enough to stand alone? If I do not need the plywood, do I need to seal the back side of the Durock board? BTW, I'd like to put a painted wood frame around it, maybe made of 2" by 2", so I could screw the board onto a frame (say, made of 1" by 2") on the back and have the exposed frame screwed onto that hidden frame. .
