Mosaic grout color: Can I change it after it's dry?

Lindajm617May 28, 2011

I made a tray by using glass tiles (that I cut) on wood. I first used white grout, but it was too light. So I made another batch of grout (weeks later) coloring it with some tea and red food coloring. I smeared it on top of the white grout and it came out too too red/pink!!!

What can I do to make it lighter? I even tried regrouting with the white but it just went back to pink!!

Should I paint it with acrylic paint? Bleach it? Any advise is greatly appreciated. The lovely tiles are mainly pink and they are disappearing within the pink grout!

HELP! Many thanks, Linda

You should ask at the stained glass & mosaic forum. I know people changed grout colors - I bet they could help you . They're a great bunch of ladies !!
