Grouting is my least favorite part of mosaic. Your grout powder will need to be mixed to a peanut butter consistency. I add small amounts of water in a tub and stir to achieve this. I then let it set for a few minutes until it slakes or rather has a slight film on top. Little by little I add the grout to the mosaic...always to remember to wear goggles, and gloves. The grout just ruins your hands. Now after applying the grout I wipe and wipe, and wipe, and wipe, and wipe. Then I wipe a little more until I like the look. Here I am using white newspaper to clean, some people use lint free cloths. This is a very short description of thisprocess. You can learn more in my mosaic workshop.
Ta Da! It's grouted but I'm not diggin the white grout. Now what. Guess I will have to experiment. Hummm, I think I will be naughty and try paint. The unthinkable to some. I will be back with more photos on this tomorrow.
