What do I use to reattach glass mosaic tiles?

Q. I have installed a stained glass wall and pond. The mosaic sits on a mortar base, redguard sealer, then more mortar to level the surface. The glass mosaic is put up with latacrete. All of this is put on to a 8 x 16 block wall. One side is peeling off the wall and the glass is cracking. What do I use to reattach the glass saic? Thanks for your help!

A. Glass will not bond with standard setting mortars. You need to use an expoxy setting mortar. Both Laticrete and Mapei have mortars for glass tile.

Best of luck!
