grout question, please

murraysmom Zone 6 OHMarch 30, 2012

I have just been taking a few classes on mosaics and now want to try to do some things at home. Below is the last piece I did in a class. I'm using a depression glass plate. These are two pictures of the same piece.

My question is, can I use grout from Home Depot or Lowe's and does it need to be "sanded" or "non-sanded"? Thanks for any help you can give.

Here's my two cents. I always use Mapei brand Keracolor sanded grout found at Lowes and wouldn't think of any other. Your first piece is very pretty.
