WIP Wednesday: Leaf plate (6 February 2013)

A bit of a cheat - I had this one done on Monday, but since I'm in between projects right now, here's a shot of it while being grouted.

    Oh my you make grouting look so tidy….
    you really don’t need the edges covered? wow!

      For me, it totally depends on what I’m grouting. If it’s raw unfinished wood or something else that could been stained by the grout, I definitely taped it off! But for this plate, I didn’t bother and instead just followed up right after with a wet cloth to wipe away any grout that got on the edges. I also do all my grouting with my hands (gloved, of course) and don’t use any tools. It’s probably not the “right” way, but I like the control it gives me and most of my mosaics are small enough that I’m not being inefficient by doing it this way.

Let me know what you think!
