    Roman tubs are NOT for the novice to do on there own in most cases, Go to the John bridge forum for help. Ask about the pro's and conns.

    Yes it is, but you would need a lot of patience, not to mention skill to do this.

    I did a tiled tub years ago. It had a step in it. That one was done with a lead pan. If I remember right there were a couple of seams that had to be soldered.

    I presume that it's the exterior of the tub that's been tiled and that's what you want to replicate?

    We did the same using self adhiesive foil which we sourced from a body repair/ spray painter shop. They use the same stuff on vehicles. It takes a while to do though.

    We used the bath as a show model for an exhibition but was never installed in someone's home however I am confident that the foil would last a long time (10 years guarantee from the manufacturer).

    Baths look amazing when completed with mosaics. If you have the time and the money, there's nothing like it!

    The pic of that mosaic work is absolutely gorgeous. I wish they were able to get a toilet that compliments all that artistic craftsmanship.I once saw some unbelievable workmanship in Italy and Greece in the 80's. Those baths were well over 500 years old and looked to be only a 100 years or so old.

    Experience is a lifetime of mistakes, wisdom is not making them again.

    People generally avoid tiles in bathtubs. Though bathroom lover people used to have the tiles all around the bathroom. Always use the tiles which are less slippery and keep them dry.
