Granite mosaics


I just wondering if anyone has ever done their own granite mosaics? I was thinking about doing one to cover up ugly cinderblock wall in den. My friend gave me some coral colored remnant granite pieces. Is there any grout that dries black, as it would bring out coral color more than white.

If anyone has could u include some pics?

Granite mosaics


Just thought I'd post a cool video on a granite fireplace mosaic for you that I saw on DIY network:

Not sure how you would adhere the mosaic to cinder block but maybe mastic would work in your case also. We are diy'ing a mosaic bathroom countertop for a master bath. I'm sure you can find colored grout just about anywhere. My contractor had a whole book of colors for us to use when we re-did our guest bath. Good luck with your project!
