Well, I’m getting close to the grouting phase, but decided a little experimentation was in order with this ‘gimicky’ tile. I love the idea, but in practice it’s either only for the professionals or it’s just not a feasible idea. The manufacturer sells the tile as a base color and then you grout in the background. The whole tile on the right was almost a success after hours of ‘dicking’ around with getting the colored grout to stick and not pull away when the bubbles where wiped clean. You can see that it still failed to cover some of the edges. The mess on the left was an experiment to see different tile edges in action, both cut and uncut. I didn’t try very hard to get the grout to stick, but just applied it as I would a normal tile project. I think this is a HUGE mess in the making when you are looking at a whole wall. With my walls now covered with these tiles, my only recourse is to go with white grout on the white bubbles so the lack of adhesion between the bubbles isn’t as much of an issue. Oh well! Best laid plans and all that!
