Mosaic Garden Stairs

These are a series of seven cement garden stairs created for a private residence. Each step is 34" wide by 7" tall. I started by making mirror mosaics of frogs and ivy leaves on Easyboard and adhering them to the steps. Then I used ceramic tile to mosaic around them using colors appropriate to the natural surroundings. Here they are halfway through the process.Here they are finished but ungrouted. And here they are finished!

Kim, your mosaics are fabulous!! How do you seal the stairs so water does not get down behind the mosaic? I have been wanting to do my porch here on Vancouver Island (rainforest) but am concerned about water! Hope to get a little bit as nice as yours are. Thanks, Madilynn
