I would like to use it as an accent in the shower. Would this be a problem?BEST ANSWER: That's a good question. I have as a backsplash in my kitchen, not quite as humid. They are lovely and rustic. I imagine the metallic paint and the fact that some are dichroic could potentially cause them to discolor. I wouldn't use harsh detergents. You could do a test art piece around a mirror or something that is covered with spray sealer in your bathroom for a time (6 months +) to see if it discolors. I can say I am completely satisfied with mine and if they age a little, even better. Best, Valerie
