Third Panel completed

I've just finished grouting the third panel (out of six) for the mural I'm working on. It's five feet high, and six and a half feet wide so far.

I used some textured leaves that are very pretty and iridescent. I was a little worried about cleaning them, but the grout came right off with a toothbrush.

Beautiful as usual. How heavy is this panel? Fantastic job.

Thank you! I think it averages to about two pounds per square foot. This is 12.5 s.f., so it weighs about 25 pounds.

Barbara Beautiful work! The finish is perfect, what is the material basis of MDF?

Thanks, Elaine, these are done on Wedi board, not mdf. I like it because it is rigid, yet light weight and easy to cut.
