day five - beginning the grouting

Grouting the mural, is the process where you cover it with a cement like substance and rub it into all of the cracks, Then you spend a considerable amount of time cleaning the cement off the artworks and tiles.

The deer park mural is a collaborative effort of 
Brimbank Council
Deer park Pharmacy,
Gallery Sunshine Everywhere
St Peter Chanel School,
Deer Park North Primary School
Deer park West Primary School
The mural is made of ceramic features made by 640 community members, set in a background of mosaic.
The mural celebrates the history of Deer Park and was officially opened on December 9, 2014
The mural is located in the arcade next to Deer Park Pharmacy, in the Deer Park shopping strip on Ballarat Rd.
