I've been putting down Saltillo tile in my house. Used a wet mix of cheap
type S mortar for grout, worked fine.
I had to stop for a while and now I can't get the same brand of mortar.
Tried Quickcrete type S but it dries to a very light grey...the other in
much darker - what I think of as "concrete color".
Fortunately, I have only a small amount of light grey joints but even if I
chip up a bit and put new on top I need a darker mortar. Anyone have any
suggestions? I know I could add a coloring agent but really don't want to
do that...I was thinking more along the line of brands. What determines the
color of set mortar?
While I'm at it, anyone have any ideas how to get the new, lighter mortar to
a darker color short of replacing it? Dye? What kind?
Thanks for suggestions,
