I have used hardiboard for all my mosaics. I have several hanging outside
our home which have been exposed to elements for over 10 years. I live in
the great NorthWet where we have had multiple years of freeze and fry
besides out usual wet,wetter and wettest weather.
I checked several of my pieces recently and I was shocked to see that they
look like the day I put them out there.
There are several options regarding thickness and surface. I tend to go for
the 1/4" but you might want to use a thicker one. I've seen it in 1/2" and
1" thickness. There are several companies producing this cement based
product one use is behind the tiles in showers.
It's economical, easy to cut and is readily available.
I use it often in the studio for ware boards, wedging surface and the big
sheet of it I haven't cut yet is leaning up against the garage door
insulating me from the cold air.
Hope this helps,
Bainbridge Island WA
