Remove pattern from Plexiglas. Use a small, flat, plastic putty spreader to apply sanded adhesive grout over the glass. Allow the grout to glide over the time, while making sure the grout pushes between the glass pieces. But don't press down hard. Otherwise you might pop off the glass pieces. You will completely cover the design. Carefully scrape away excess grout. Finish the edges and scrape them clean.
Now using an almost dry sponge and keeping it completely flat, begin wiping the grout off the surface. It will be a process of rinsing the sponge, wringing it out to get as much water as possible out of the sponge, and then wiping the grout some more. Continue doing this until the glass is almost clean. It is VERY important that you keep the sponge flat so as not to pull the grout from between the spaces. After much wiping, rinsing, and wringing the sponge dry to the touch, the glass should appear almost clean. A pale haze of grout remaining on the glass is to be expected.
Allow to dry for 24 hours.
Use a soft wash cloth and glass cleaner to buff the glass to a beautiful shine. Place it on a window sill to let the light shine through.
