It looks wonderful!  What color grout color wash will it have? (As an absolute beginner who doesn't really know what she's saying) I was thinking maybe black, except for in the Star of David area, where it would look better white (or a close match to the glass there).

Thank you all for checking out my mosaic! Smiley

Sweets: Guesstamating the time so far to be about 20 - 30 hours.

Muria: The overall grout will be white, then a color wash of black will be done on everything except the star. So you a right on the money!  Wink

Wow, that's amazing.  To think what some people do with 20 - 30 hours of their time while you're creating masterpieces like this!

Grouted to day, and now I have to decide on the color(s) for the grout. Input welcome!

Oh my goodness!!

Sitting here alone in my living room, I actually just said, "Wow!" outloud when I saw the first picture (promptly before hitting the little camera icon to make it a favorite project in my profile!).

Absolutely amazing.  I thought I had visualized what the final piece would look like, but I was so wrong!  The piece I saw was awesome & all, but this is crazzzzy!

Would you mind outlining exactly what you ended up doing in the grouting process & which product(s) you used?  Whatever you did is exactly what I want to do with our wedding piece, but in red/black/mirrors.

Wow, wow, wow!
