Mosaic Tips of the Day:

When creating a mosaic, start with either a clean concrete, wooden, glass, or metal surface. We find using standard all purpose caulk is the way to go to adhere tiles, stones, gems, shells, or any other special found item to the surface you are mosaicing. It’s really a two day process. One day of adhering and one day or grouting. After allowing roughly a day for the caulk to cure and the objects to firmly bond to the surface, filling in the gaps with sanded grout works great. Do not wait more than a half an hour to go back and wipe off the grout that is covering the beautiful image below. If you do, it will have hardened and is much more difficult to clean up in order to reveal the beautiful image you created.
