Wait 24 hours for adhesive to cure before applying grout. Mix grout in a bucket according to the manufacturer's directions. Apply grout along tile seams so it fills them in completely. Do not grout the bottom seam, this will be filled with caulk in a later step.
Clean Surface of Tile
Using a soft, wet sponge, remove excess grout from the tile's surface. Use a gentle approach so you don't wipe grout out of the seams. After an hour, buff glass tiles to remove the hazy film left by grout and water.
Apply a thin bead of caulk on the bottom seam where tile meets the countertop. Wet your finger and smooth the caulk seam in a single, continuous motion.
