Chimney grouting complete

by brae  

As expected, the topper was more challenging to grout but not as bad as I thought it would be.  I rubbed the grout (spackling) into the spaces with my finger on the very top and on the flat surfaces between the spirals.  After wiping away the excess, I went back in with a toothpick to remove any excess from the corners around the spiral bricks.  I also pushed extra grout into the lines I couldn't reach with my finger.  I used a wet brush to clean the sides of the spiral bricks as well.

All in all, it worked well.  There is a bit more excess grout on the topper surfaces but a dark paint wash will significantly tone down the light grey residue.

I love how much solidity the grout adds to the whole structure.
