Measure up from your kitchen table a minimum of 1/8 inch and mark it with a pencil on your wall. Continue this process across your wall at least every 6 inches. Place your straight edge to pencil marks and connect the marks with your pencil. You must have a straight line across your wall that is 1/8 inch above the countertop. Spread mastic on the wall or on the back of each tile, using your tile trowel. Take care not to cover up your pencil mark, if you choose to spread your mastic on the wall, and only scattered enough to install two rows at a time. You do not want your mastic to start drying before you can set your plastic backsplash tiles.
