A Grout of a Different Color

So how does this whole custom grout color thing work?

I’ve tried using various paints, acrylic and the like, to customize a grout color but I wasn’t happy with the shiny bubble gum look after the grout dried. Turned to grout pigment and it works great. We use to sell it at the shop and may still again … just not right now:(

Grout pigments are highly concentrated and small amounts should be added incrementally until the desired color intensity is reached.

Grout Pigment Directions:

  • Use one teaspoon of dry colorant for every 8 ounces of grout. Sanded grout is preferred in most of my projects.
  • Dissolve pigment in water (or grout additive) before mixing with dry grout.
  • Mix well, give it a sec
  • Grout
  • Pray a little.
  • Clean, polish, seal.
