Are you an arts and crafts nut? Here is a great free video about how to apply mosaic grout.
Okay, now this is a good consistency for the grout. You can see that it's pretty thick and now we're ready. Now you want to wear rubber gloves when you do this work because the grout can be a little bit harsh on your hands. And you want to have a sponge handy and a little bit of water for rinsing. You just take the grout and spread it. This is nice to have a pallet spreader but you can even just take it with your hands for a small project like this. And with your finger, just push the grout into the cracks. With all the broken crockery it can rip your gloves so you want to be aware of that. You can even use a plastic knife to spread the grout on. And you push it into all the cracks all around. And on the sides, the same on the beaded sides. Just spread that in and get it right down into all the cracks, and all around the beads. It's kind of like playing with mud pies. You can work in sections too. We'll do this part and then we'll do the bottom part and then we'll do the top part. And then the excess you can rub off and rub back on. You just really want to push that grout in between and make sure it gets all the way down to the wood surface. Then you want to, after you get it all on and in there, you want to wipe off the excess. Around the beads you'll need to be a little more gentle where you're almost like frosting it. And you'll kind of rub it. You want to wipe it off. You want to get a little bit between the beads without going all the way down to the wood, without pulling all the grout out between because the beads have quite a bit of space in between them. I'm going to wash my hands to make this a little more easily.
