Individually glued, then grouted and sealed.

copper penny bathroom floor - What do you seal the floor with after grouting? The pennies will discolor around the toilet and with cleaning. Is epoxy sealant as in garage floor too slippery?

How are the pennies adhered to the floor? - Yes I would like to know how you secured the pennies to the floor and also what you used as a top coat? Looking forward to your reply. Thanks so much Kim

I used a construction adhesive to glue each penny to the floor. VERY time consuming but gave me the most flexibility to ensure that each penny was lined up properly. From there I grouted around the pennies and used a driveway or concrete sealant to ensure that everything was waterproofed, especially around the toilet.
The tricky part was finding a sealant that wouldn't oxidize or discolor the pennies.
I used about three coats and reapply every two years or so.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A nonfunctioning but charming radiator salvaged from renovations at the Dodson House hotel in Vancouver adds charm. A glimpse into the bathroom in the background shows Wilman's unique penny flooring. It was inspired by a penny floor seen in a hotel. "It was a labor of love to hand place all those pennies, but it was well worth the time and effort," Wilman says.
