On to project #2

downeastwavesJuly 29, 2011

Mosaic Project #2 Dragon. I sure wish I could keep the grout out of the texture on the sea glass. I sealed it before I grouted it but it still crept into the texture...oh well, it has to dry a couple days and then I can try and get more of it out. What do you think? I have three more projects ready to glue...maybe I will try some different grout, one I can spread on and just set the glass in place. any suggestions?

Here is a link that might be useful:

very cool! What size is it?
I had some delicate pieces that I covered with painters tape before grouting once. Could you do that with a few key pieces next time, or the ones that are most textured? Now I'm worried about my luna moth tail.
I wish your pic was just a bit bigger.

IT is 15 inches by 71/2 inches. I will go up load to a web page so it can be bigger. I can't remember how to embed the pix in the messages. It would be hard with the tape as the little ones are textured too.
