Chimney grouting complete


As expected, the topper was more challenging to grout but not as bad as I thought it would be. I rubbed the grout into the spaces with my finger on the very top and on the flat surfaces between the spirals. After wiping away the excess, I went back in with a toothpick to remove any excess from the corners around the spiral bricks. I also pushed extra grout into the lines I couldn't reach with my finger. I used a wet brush to clean the sides of the spiral bricks as well. All in all, it worked well. There is a bit more excess grout on the topper surfaces but a dark paint wash will significantly tone down the light grey residue. I love how much solidity the grout adds to the whole structure.

NOTE: this particular image keeps changing - some sort of gremlin in the gallery. :huh:
