Yellow Grout
« on: June 02, 2009, 01:21:09 AM »
Help!! I need some yellow grout...and I don't want to use colorant cuz I really like doing the dry grout method. Has anybody had any experience with yellow grout...I'm kind of looking for a buttery yellow. I found some "Almond Yellow" on ebay and some "Italian Straw" another place...but it's hard to tell when you can't see it in person!  THANKS!

I used Italian Straw on my Armoire doors...it's a very very pale yellow.  On the neutral side vs the bright side.
No amount of advance planning will ever replace dumb luck.

My kitchen, bathroom, hallways and foyer are grouted in "butter cream."

Really poor choice for floors, but it's a nice color by itself.

I also have used butter cream and it is a nice soft yellow. If you have access to Backyard  Mosaics by C. Sheerin, it's used quite a bit. She's also paints over it quite a bit too. You can see it on the retro dining table (pg 57) and a birdfeeder (pb 124). However, I think it looks more tan than it is on the table and more white on the feeder.

If you haven't got the grout yet, i got a wonderful sunny yellow from mosaicyaks on ebay. I've bought quite a few things from them in the past. Love the gloves in a bottle.  Friendly Texas gals.

Thanks everyone! I went and looked at my local DIY store and found butter cream and italian straw...I bought the italian straw...but now I see that yellow at Mosiyak's and I think I'll get that, too (also ordered some of that lipstick red grout..it's so pretty!)
You can never have too much grout!
