how to disguise granite joints ...

I've had 5 pieces of absolute black granite installed as a fireplace surround. The workmanship is pretty good yet I would like to further disguise the joints, if possible. I've thought of black shoe polish ... any other (better) suggestions? I do not want to get involved with epoxies etc ...

Thank you in advance ...

minimize grout joint width(1/8"), and use grout same color as tile.

If you didn't want to see joints, you should of had them cut everything from one piece. I doubt anything you do will hide them any more. It will more than likely highlight the joint. The biggest problem you have will be that the granite is polished and whatever you use won't have that same gloss.

Can you take a picture for us?

Black silicone has a nice gloss finish. It just wouldnt work as a skim coat over grout.
