- Step 10:
While waiting for your project to dry (should take about 30mins). Start mixing your grout with water until it is the consistency of cookie dough.
Tip: If you are doing an outdoor project mix some bonding liquid with your grout to make it water resistant.
- Step 11:
Spread your grout evenly into all the caps, once it is dry sponge the excess grout off with a damp sponge. Be careful not to remove too much grout in the process so that it makes holes. Once the grout is completely dry polish the project with a dry cloth. (do not use polish products).
- Step 12:
Spray paint the sides of the tray, avoid getting paint on your mosaic by sticking a piece of old newspaper over your project.
- Step 13:
After your tray is dry and free of dust you can know pour your Pratliglo on, this gives your project a wonderful glass finished look and will also avoid coffee and tea stains on your grout.
