newbie needs help
I'd like to make some stepping stones and then mosiac them. Could you please help me out? We're building our new home and I want these to look regal, for it. This is what I've done so far, but not happy with the results. Please tell me what I did wrong. Please be critical.
First I took a large plant saucer we had lying around here, and greased it with used motor oil. Next I dumped in some cement mix we had here. Nothing to add, but the water. There were way to many pebbles in the cement for my taste. Next I tried pushing in my broken dish pieces I had laying around. They wouldn't go in very far, because of all the pebbles. The cement came all the way up to the top of the tile, now there'll be no room, to grout.
Well it's been 3 days and I slid out my stepping stone. Just as I thought no room to grout, some of the tiles stuck well and others came off easy. Whiped off the cement off the top of the tile, looks better now. I need you guys help badly. Thanks!!!
