Install glass mosaic backsplash over glossy paint in kitchen???

We are planning on installing a glass mosaic backsplash in our kitchen, which is currently painted with a semi gloss paint. We were told that the glass tiles would not stick to the glossy paint and the options we have are to either install backerboard or underlayment to the area before using the thin set mortar. Are these our only options??

Rough up the semi gloss paint with sand paper to take the gloss off. Clean off the residue and paint with a flat latex primer. You can then install the glass tile. Make sure you used the glass manufacturers recommended installation method and setting materials. Check out their website

Vic keep in mind that you can see thru the glass, and so you will see the color of the bondera. This stuff is kinda like setting tile with double sided tape if you ask me.

Note to op, your glass manufacturer should have specific installation instructions to folllow for their glass tile.
