Make frame and fit in backerboard.
The frames are made from Walnut wood that we have on hand from Mark's wood working days.
Mark makes the frames for me and cuts to fit the backer board. I then sand twice and put on coats of wipe on poly and then a coat of paste wax goes on the whole thing.
Then I start testing out tiles to see what I Like.
Before I grout I use blue tape to cover the mirror and the handmade tiles.
On this one we used a grout that has Portland cement in it. It was not as sandy and seemed to work very well.
I plan on using this again with a bit of red to it for the next mirror.
After it cures you can sand it if you want to,I did ,and then apply a sealer.
It is still a work in progress for me.
There are times, as we all know, that I think, "Why the heck am I taking on something new right now?"
This is it in the edited version- there were no words added that would embarrass anyone involved.
Although you can add them if you like.
Back to the wheel and planning a gas firing.
