A surprise mosaic finish!
I've had the grout to finish this mosaic for weeks now and have been putting off finishing it. Yesterday while contemplating what I could get finished by the end of the month this came to mind. The weather was nice so I could open all of the windows for ventilation.
This is the backsplash behind my dye sink. The idea started with one of the sections on my Great Wall.All of the fish were made in my glass kiln using scrap bits of glass. The dots are glass penny tiles left over from my friend's bathroom remodel. I made a frame from ceramic bullnose tile.This time I bought pre-mixed grout and I'm not totally happy with it. When I grout the beaded wall I will purchase a different grout but this worked fine and I don't really care now that it's done!
Here are a few close ups of some of the fish. It will be so nice to work here next week without the constant reminder that it needed to be finished. Now I can just enjoy it.
Hallelujah! Another UFO dispatched!

Oh those nagging little fishies always staring you in the face every time you're at the sink, " ahem, we need to be finished". They look happy now and bonus points for the frame.

I love your tile projects. My favorite fish is the light green one with the blue to red strip in the middle. Another happy result.
