Two Grout Colors


I have to grout a light colored grout around glass tile and have a dark color running up to it for the other field tile. What's the best sequence and method for keeping them separate and clean?

Grout will be Spectralock.

Re: Two Grout Colors


Also, this is pretty obvious, but wait for one color to set before you apply the second color.

Re: Two Grout Colors


i like to do the drak grout first. the darker colors easily bleed into the lighter ones. if you have the time let it dry as much as possible.
