    Awwww god damn I'm tired... I have pulled my neck AND back, have a cold AND the squits, yet continue with the DIY dammit tiling.

    The grout lines are pretty nice, I've got almost all of them dead on the spacers.

    I was wondering if I can go a bit further at the end and make it look even more like a continuous surface with a gloss grout sealer, to make the lines blend with the glaze even more.

    The tiles are regular cheapo white ceramics. The grout will be white as well.

    Or is glossing the grout going to show it up more, as a gloss finish shows up the roughness in wood finishes?

    This is a bathroom.

    I switched from BAL Rapidset to BuildFix Super Flexible, as both are highly polymer modified, thick and thin bed, for wet areas and flexible, but the latter is £25 a bag and the BAL is £45. Half an hour open time, 8 hour pot life, very quick grab.

    I used a BAL tanking / waterproofing kit for the bath / shower area. Works okay, but a sting at £75 for what I suspect is mainly PVA and then SBR.

    Used cementone Tanking slurry for the floor - which is cement mixed with SBR. £30 a 25kg bag - and a bit of an annoyance to work with.
