It's been over a month since I worked on this mosaic. You might remember that I got this far and realized that I was going to run out of blue glass penny tile. It took a lot of driving around town, but I finally found it and was able to order an extra sheet. It was NOT cheap but at this point I didn't care. Nothing else was going to work. I finally got back to it this week.
It really didn't take that long to finish the blue penny tile. Just a couple of hours and it was done.
I originally planned to tile over this block of wood (that I can't remove because it holds up the sewer pipe). But one day I decided that panting it would be so much easier and It worked out just fine.
Then I was able to get my wet saw out and cut some time for the frame edge. I'm pretty darned pleased with my mitered corners.
Here it is! Ready for grouting. I had hoped to do that soon but because the grout has VOCs I have to heave the windows open so that will wait until mid to late September when I can have the windows open for a few days. Compared to that bog wall, grouting this will be a piece of cake.
