Cement is a strong, cheap and versatile adhesive. In its traditional form cement has a neutral color, however it can be easily colored using liquid or powder colorants.

Cement can be mixed with sand and used for installing indoor and outdoor mosaics. A mixture of sand and cement is often used for floor based mosaics where uneven tiles are required to make a level surface.

Cement is very alkaline and advisable to wear gloves and a face mask to prevent dust going into your lungs and burning your hands.

I recommend using a slow setting cement adhesive for interior mosaics as it gives you a longer working time and the ability to move pieces at the last minute.
