That was an actual question that was posed to me this past week.
Scary thing is … I think I do have a fairy or two lying around …
I just can’t find the little buggers … they must be hiding;)
Fairies do that, you know.
So, Alice … the fairies are indisposed but I do have a colony of plastic rabbits, drive thru plastic toys and the
Three Stooges minus Moe … maybe he’s with the fairies.
I’ll keep looking!
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Basic instruction for indoor mosaic tile construction:
Cut pieces to size – wear safety glasses.
Glue pieces to the a prepared surface like this one with Mastic (it’s not concrete)
Let the glued pieces dry for at least 24 hours
Prepare grout according to instructions – put on gloves
Grout the piece filling in all the gaps but avoiding delicate objects
Then clean off the wet grout until it’s shiny
Dispose of unused grout properly …
meaning NOT DOWN THE DRAIN – you’ll be sorry.
Let the cleaned piece dry for another 24 hours and polish with a soft cloth as needed
Seal with grout sealer found at any tile or home improvement store
Start with a base and found pieces
Attach the random pieces to the base with mastic found at the home improvement store.
Let the glued pieces dry for 24 hours and grout.
Wipe grout off and keep polishing until clean. Let dry 24 hours. Seal with grout sealer.
