I finally got the darn thing done!

It took me longer to seal this thing than anything! I wanted to be sure it was SEALED!

Toad's are sure getting some fancy housing lately!
WOW, this is really AWESOME! Sooo many pretty things!
Did you color thinset and stick on and then seal or did you stick on and grout and seal? Looks like it would be a PITA to grout!

Thanks ya'll.
Slow, the snail head was broken from a ceramic piece I used to cast and glaze and mosaic.
Cindi, I did use thinset than then grouted, and it was a PITA but I used the 'grout in the bag' trick that someone here suggested. Sorry I forget who but it was a life saver!

Here is a link that might be useful:

Wow! THis is great! I am very envious of some toads. I have a huge bag os shells that I got from the beaches in Jacksonville, NC. I must think of something to use them on.

Have a great day!
