Hi all. I'm installing a new kitchen backsplash (mesh backed glass mosiac tiles). I've removed the old white tiles at this point and the drywall is down to the paper in most spots (some holes need repaired). My question relates to how to prep the dry wall for the tiling. Do I get the drywall repaired, smoothed, and then lay down some sort of compound/thin set, let that dry, then lay down the tile adhesive and tile? I'm thinking I can't lay my compound adhesive directly on the papered drywall, hence my question on how to best prep the dry wall for tiling. Thanks in advance!
