Like you said, miniscule. I would grout it and move on. I'm pretty detail oriented too.

If you can't remove the marks with a wet cloth the marble is likely etched and they won't come out, easily anyway. I would keep trying to contact the company responsible. FWIW marble doesn't really...

So Dave, I know exactly what you're talking about. I used the white TEC on some transparent tile once and unfortunately they were different lots. I didn't think anything of it until I opened the bags...

No matter the tile size, control lines mapped out solve that problem. Fit everything into the grid as you go. Not many options at this point.

That's a bummer Nick. Otherwise your job is A game. That's why I just grout and don't caulk. I prefer to chance a minor crack vs a racing stripe.

I doubt Versabond will stick to the marine epoxy. What's the purpose of all this? Sounds like a lot of extra work and expensive materials.
