Super wide grout joints

As part of my shower tiling project I added an artistic band of cool fused glass tiles that we found as rejects at a glass recycling/tile store.

Anyhow some of the pieces were a bit narrow for the alloted space and I ended up with a handfull of voids approaching 3/4" in width.

I will be grouting with Prism and I'm wondering if these spaces will be able to hold the grout ok or is there something I can do to better insure success?

Thanks!
Bob

Hi Bob,
The grout will span it just fine. Just make sure you don't mix it real wet.
With a little bit drier grout mix you'll have to work slightly smaller areas at a time.
