1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Question about Mosaic Tile Sealer Protector or Finish Help! on: June 12, 2011 01:38:08 PM
Hi everyone! I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but an internet search hasn't really helped much so I thought I'd try here. I have a Mid Century tile-top table that I bought at a garage sale. It needs a lot of T.L.C, including re-grouting, refinishing, and re-canning of the wicker bottom. Right now I'm working on the re-grouting of the glass tile, as big chunks of the original grout have cracked and come out. I'm wondering what type of sealer/protecting finish would be best to put on top of the tile and grout once it's done and dried. I've seen tile sealers at Lowe's and other hardware stores, but I think those are meant more for bathroom and floor tile. Would something like that work on a coffee table tile insert? Or should I use a sealer used for mosaic crafts and art? What type of sealers do you use to protect your mosaics? I would appreciate any suggestions or insight on this. Thanks so much!


Also, here are some pictures of the table just to give you a visual. It's not that big a tile section, probably 2 ft. by 1 ft. Don't mind my cat Jamaica; she loves to get in on the action, lol.
