A few months back we had to put our truly wonderful cat down. It was heartwrenching. He was truly a prince among cats. He'd was really the hubster's as got him when he was but wee and a good three years before we hooked up, but I loved him like my own, just the same. More than a pet/owner relationship, with Ignatz we had an understanding.
Anyway, I have this fabulous b&w photo I took of him in his prime and I want to create a b&w mosaic on a big patio stone as a monument in our back yard where he's buried. I have little-to-no mosaic experience, the only thing I'm sure of is that I'd like shiny black, white, and multiple shades of gray tiles. I'm sure I'm going to have to shape some myself (I've got nippers), but I don't know what grout to use, how to attach the pieces, or "seal?" the finished object. Can anyone enlighten me? This project is very, very meaningful.
