water proofing shower walls ?

Hi all , I just finished grouting (sanded) the shower walls with 12 x12 porcelain tiles with a 2" strip of 1" glass mosaic tiles around every 4" sq. block... what can I use to seal this wall ?

Well the best thing is to waterproof the wall under the tile. But now the main issue is the grout since porcelain and glass are impervious,and there are many good sealers with little rolling applicators or the corner of a sponge and caulk the corner joints with a wet area color caulk. Aqua seal or tyw impregnators.

The big deal here is to NOT leave any sealer on the surface of the tiles. Let it "dwell" after you apply it, but only for a few minutes. Don't allow it to dry on the surface. Remove it with clean rags or paper towels. Polish it off until it gleams.
