This Do-It-Yourself Grout Kit is the perfect solution for completing your own small mosaic projects. Included are easy step-by-step instructions and all the necessary grouting supplies. This sanded grout produces dense joints that resist cracking and shrinking.
This is a dry, cement-based grout with silica sand that you will mix yourself and is suitable for interior and exterior grout installations including areas where water may be prevalent. This grout may be used for vitreous, semi-vitreous, or non-vitreous tile: ceramic, mosaic, quarry, cement body tile, impervious porcelain, glass tile, brick and stone veneer, and cement-based precast terrazzo Natural stone tile. Some glass tile, ceramic tile, marble, or stone can be scratched or stained.
This grout kit should remain sealed and at room temperature until ready to use. Once the grout is mixed and used, the remainder cannot be stored for later use. It is important to plan on using the grout for your art project while the grout is ready to use. Oftentimes, people add a second grout bag so that they can have a backup of grout.
