Calin's last 2 - and grout question (black or grey)

calinromaniaJuly 23, 2009

Hey guys!

Been busy working and in my free time... sometimes making mosaics. yes! still around!

my no 3 is this one called "Koreana" cause i inspired from the S Korean flag

and i told you i am gonna do a piece to hang on my kitchen wall above the table.

it's almost finished! needs grouting. and the question is

BLACK (well, almost black), or the grey i used on the Koreana???

I was wondering about you just this week. Glad to see you're still w/us. This is a very pretty piece of wall art. It's so neat and cleanly done. I don't usually advise people on grout color.

hello SMD :D
i am still around. it's just... it's summer and i don't tend to spend so much time on the internet.
after work there is so much to do :D
yes... this one... for the kitchen is pretty big. but i love it. someone told me it's really "colorful" ... maybe the yellow "wall" and everything else.
but i tried to make a "sunny morning" thing!
:)

I really like the morning piece! When I really like a piece prior to grout it is really hard for me to picture with grout added.

Such a happy piece of art. You really know how to use your tess, CALIN. The black gems are perfect for the musical notes. Your design says it all. One couldn't help but start the day whistling on first sight of this one. Yeah, I'm a black/charcoal person too. CALAM wouldn't have led your wrong on that one.

Beautiful work! What catches me is how carefully detailed this work is. As I am a beginner have only done big clunky pieces...these are so fine. Wonderful piece...hope you are able to sell it. :)
