Wow!  I love hitting "Show Only Images" and seeing it all come together one photo at a time.

Today's addition looks chunkier with the colors (bigger patches of white this time) than yesterday's update, but I don't think it's noticeable once it's all together/unless they are looking at day-by-day photos like me.

That is beautiful. 

Such nachas for your dad  Cheesy  And just think of the future generations showing that off.  It's lovely.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

I think the colors look a little bit chunkier today too, but in a good way.  It's definitely not looking formulaic, though, and it's gorgeous so far! Smiley

Oh HSG, it's magnificent!  Cool Cool

I love the fluidity of the colors...it does have a randomness to it.

I'm interested to know how you're going to grout it and with what kind of grout. I have a table I'm mosaic-ing but haven't figured out yet what to do when I get there. Keep posting your progress. It seems like you're coming along pretty quickly.

Most likely I will use an unsanded grout, because sanded will scratch the glass. As for the color, I'm thinking of doing a color wash rather than a colored grout. It will give me more options, and will be easier to deal with.

As for your question of how, I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. Do you not know how to grout, or are you asking if I will use the dry versus wet method?

Thank you all for your interest, and comments. Smiley

Well, apparently my hubby was wrong again when he said I owned one of everything from the glass store. Seems I missed some of the white, cause I ran out! LOL Have to make an unexpected trip to the glass shop to get enough to finish...and whatever else I may see. ~: )

Here is an update for now though:
