Grout colour can make such a difference to a mosaic, and it is so easy to choose the wrong colour and regret it afterwards. So for my wall mosaic, i want to make sure that i got it right.
The background is quite a shiny cream tile. As i have put a lot of cutting work into the detail of it, with flow and movement etc, if i grouted in cream, then you wouldn't see that. I could grout in a dark blue/grey, which would bring the bodies of the birds together but would break up the background too much. So i thought of beige (think sleeveless golfing jumper beige).
To test it out, i made a very quick duck mosaic, using the same materials as my big mosaic - and i have to stress that it was VERY QUICK. The image shows the before grouting and after grouting.
So i think this will work well. it also brings a bit more warmth to the mosaic as well. So beige it is.
But what do i do with this duck mosaic now!?!
