Making Mosaics

A Bit More About Grout

You might prefer to experiment with grout colorants. Check your local home improvement store. Also, there are many creative artists who “color” their grout in various ways.

A number of years ago, an artist used acrylic paint to grout his mosaics. The photos were intriguing, but I could never bring myself to try it. Someday, I might work up the courage. The thing is, it’s hard not to be overly protective of my creations…

I did venture out many years ago and try onyx-colored grout. Oranges, reds, yellows, pinks, lighter blues/greens/purples were GORGEOUS against this backdrop. However, dark grout was everywhere and stained everything. The dust settled onto other mosaics, scarves, etc… Perhaps things have changed.
