Penny Fireplace: A Penny for your thoughts?

We have a lovely house here in southern Georgia with 4 original coal fireplaces. The tile in our dining room fireplace was old and badly damaged so after some Google inspiration and pricing new tiles, we went with pennies!! Check out our penny fireplace +the custom R for our last name. This was all majorly impart to our friend Dirk who is the expert when it comes to tile work and remodeling things.

Every other penny is fliped head to bottom with some treasure hunts along the way ;)
A littleless than 5400 pennies, reused base molding, Bondera used for the penny adhesive,brown grout, and 2 coats of poly urethane.

    Is there a site that can explain each step. I see how the pennies were placed but what materials did you use? what type of sticky film did you use? Did you grout the pennies in place? I love this idea but Im one of those who needs step by step
