Adding beads and embellishments

wishdishMay 29, 2011

I made a mosaic cross today, and I want to add four tiny beads as embellishment. I'm concerned that they will pop off when I grout. So, how can I add them later. I know people do it, but can't remember how. My guess is that I grout the piece and then squish the bead into the grout, to make a space for it, then remove it, and when grout is dry, reattach with my adhesive (in this case, weldbond). Will that work, or is there a better way? Thanks!

That's exactly how SILVAMAE does it. Sounds good to me. Pictures please when you finish.
