kitchen backsplash have a few questions

Just recently got our backsplash up Saturday nite.

This is like a mosaic rocks and glass tiles. Used sanded grout.

Was wondering what the difference between sanded caulk and non sanded caulk is. Should I use sanded caulk since I used sanded grout

Also I still need to seal. What's a good sealer to get that will work with glass to?

Thanks for all the help this is all new to me. Just joined.

If you already used sanded grout then stick with sanded caulking in order to match the look.

You wont need a sealer for the glass so just stick with an inexpensive grout sealer.

Even though the glass will be unaffected by sealant, I'd still use a quality grout sealer such as Miracle 511 or Aqua mix Sealers Choice Gold or Dupont Bullett Proof.

Do NOT buy anything from TileLab.

For when DIY isn't such a good idea...

Thanks for the information guys I have seen aquamix that's at my local.

so you're saying putting this down shouldn't affect the glass which is mixed in with stone. Thanks again for the help

no sealer isn't going to hurt or seal the glass. I like to spray or sponge on the sealer and let it soak in for a few minutes then come back and dry up and runs or puddles. I also like to use a micro fiber towel to clean off the glass tiles. you don't want to let the sealer dry on the glass tiles as it may leave a film on them.
