watering can

anneinva_2009February 1, 2010

This was another thrift shop find. It is brass. I used china and stained glass. I don't like the grout. I think it is too light. But I really don't like the white tiles I used. I should have used the white china from the plates, but I didn't know they would look so washed out. Live and learn. I am making these things for our school auction.

If you are unhappy with it, why not tint the grout. Couldn't hurt and your tiles would show up better!

I agree w/KAT. Mix a thin acrylic paint and paint the grout. I can see a charcoal grout to show your tiles better. Nice mosaic job, though.
