    it can be done but it is not recommended. most important thing to determine is if the formica is properly adhered to the wall. if it's the least bit flexible or spongy then i would recommend removing it prior to tiling. if it appears to be nice and tight on the wall, you can purchase a bonding agent at any tile store. you simply paint or roll it on the formica and after it dries, you can tile away.

    There is no tiling product that will allow for a decent bond.

    Removing the formica is normally a very easy process

    MLB - could it be SimpleMat? I have not used it but HomeDepot has a tutorial using SimpleMat to tile on a mirror. They also said DAP Aquarium Adhesive could also be used on a mirror. Might work on formica? The SimpleMat also will adhere the grout but I don't know about the DAP.
