Long time lurker..... finally taking the first step!
Hello everyone! My name is Linda and I live just east of Memphis, TN. I am a long time GW member and have been lurking on your forum for about a year. I love what you do! I have been collecting old china, tiles, etc and finally decided to just give it a try.
I tried to mosaic a stepping stone, I thought that would be the easiest thing to try first. I bought some mortar mix and got busy. BUT! I dont think I did something right. I mixed the mortar, about the thickness of brownie mix, smoothed it on the stone, then laid out my pattern. The mix seemed very dry, my pieces were just kinda sitting on top of the mix.
I took everything off and made the mix a little wetter. Now I think it is all smushed (is that a word?) in the mix too much. Will I be able to grout over this? Was I supposed to just morter each piece and put it on the stone or was this the right procedure?
