I am usually a fan of black grout, but I would go for clear with this project because I think it would detract from the black/dark glass you used in the design, but again that is my 2 pennies. 

BTW That is gorgeous!

Quick question.  How did you adhere the glass tiles?  Did you use E600, epoxy or another glue?  Thanks

Thank you for the input! I appreciate the other points of view. Smiley

I'm going to hang it in one of the windows of my dining room.

The glass is adhered with GEII clear silicone in a caulk gun. It works best with glass on glass projects, I've found.

Think I will try to start the grouting tomorrow or Wednesday. Also in the middle of painting my kitchen.  Roll Eyes

EEP! I love it! Your work is so inspiring.  Smiley

I say black frame and black grout. That would make a bold statement.

I think I would go clear silicon to keep the clear part on the bottom clear. I really like how it looks now, and I'm not sure if it would look as cool with the black.

Awww! Thanks PinkyK! Smiley

Have to say I'm leaning to the regular grout in a dark color. I've been looking at it (have it in my kitchen whilst painting), and I really think the dark grout would make the colors pop. But not completely decided yet.  Roll Eyes

Someone make up my mind!  Grin
