I am remodeling a bathroom and wanted to do the shower walls with art work and then cover with safety glass. Does anyone have any knowledge of doing this and will condensation on the back side of the glass form thus destroying the walls and art work?
I have never seen a shower with glass walls inside so I thought it might be interesting but not possible?

Hmmm,interesting idea.I have never heard of anyone trying this and therefore can only offer a theory as to what you might run into.There is bound to be a temperature difference between the wall side of the glass and the exposed side(especially during a hot shower).This would cause condensation on the inside(wall side)of the glass which would take some time to evaporate due to the nature of the installation.I would explore the use of a clear fixative or a clear polyurethane type product from a paint or art store.Good Luck!

That sounds like it would look pretty awesome. I'm pretty sure condensation would form, though, causing the art to be destroyed. I saw some cool showers that are completely enclosed with glass. It's another unique idea for a shower that I think looks really cool.
