What about glass?
You can get stone cut and shaped you know, A piece of stone the thickness of a piece of glass can be done easily, they may even have some at your local home store. You might have to clean it up to give the surface you want, but stone is doable. Remember that stone can be more fragile than glass.

How did you sensitize the area on the sidewalk? And did you coat it afterward? Or was it exposed to foot traffic?
Thanks for asking... it was a fun experiment.
I just dumped sensitizer on the sidewalk and covered it up until it was dried. Then put a neg on top (I had a very large -- maybe 24 x 36 copy neg at the time) and exposed. Then hosed off with a garden hose. Nothing more. It was in a part of the sidewalk that was basically unused but had sun exposure during the entire day -- all year long.

Reason: "dumped", not 'jumped' as originally mis-ty[ped
FWIW - I stapled a tannin-toned cyanotype to the deck railing for a year. It was a mostly sunny location (er, Cleveland 'sunny', which isn't all that much sun TTTT). No fading, but it did take on a 'silvered' gray tone rather than the purple-brown of a a freshly toned c'type. Paper was Bienfang 360 (the original paper, not the newer version). The paper didn't loose any strength in the ordeal.
