Is there anything more satisfying than adding the finishing touches to a project? This step can be a little bit nerve-racking for beginners to DIY mosaics, but you'll be amazed at how you'll feel when your grout is wiped clean. Check out our video for this process here.
STEP 1: MIX THE GROUT
Put a small amount of your grout powder into your disposable cup. The amount will vary based on the size of your project. For a 6"-12" project, start with about a half cup of grout. Keep in mind that you can always mix more, but you can't reuse grout later that you've already mixed up.
Next, add a couple of tablespoons of water at a time. The goal is to have grout the consistency of a thick milkshake. It needs to be thick enough that it won't drip, but thin enough to be smooth and spreadable.
