permacolor select colorant as thinset tint

howdy folks,

question: can I use permacolor select colorants in my white thinny
in advance of grouting with a similar color.

-- in this instance I am using silver shadow (laticrete) spectralock in 1 inch hex and then it occured to me??

-- self, I thought, inevitably, even with a brush to clear joints there is always some peek-through of thinny . . . wonder if I could use the "select" colorants
to minimize that small issue??

I know select has a powdered sealing component and do not know if it is in the solids or the colorant??

anyone?? rothberg, nash??

Stephen at the recent Laticrete PTK I was told that they are in the process of testing Permacolor Select colorants with 254 platinum, kinda like the one step method. I would say go for it!

The rumour I heard is mix two packets with the 25lb bag of glass tile adhesive.
Would be usefull for setting paper faced glass tile.
