We grouted two pieces today! Here the students and a parent volunteer are cleaning grout out of incised lines in the tiles and clearing off lower or thinner tiles that were covered over during the grouting process.
Spring, grouted. The grout color will lighten fairly significantly to a soft silvery gray within 24 hours or so as it dries.
Fall, grouted. Not all mosaics are grouted, but when used, it serves two purposes: to seal between the tiles, thus protecting them, and to visually pull the mosaic together, creating a more cohesive finished piece.
Summer detail. This was the last area needing to be filled in on this panel. I love the flock of geese, and note the life cycle of the frog represented in the pond.
Winter, with detail below.
Next and possibly last day for me on this project is Friday. Hoping to finish grouting the last two panels that day.
