Question Installing Thin Brick on Exisitng Concrete Porch

I have an existing small concrete back porch with three steps up to my house entrance, and wanted to install "used" thin brick over the existing concrete.
Can anyone direct me to the best way/steps to do this installation, as well as which thin brick product would be most recommended for use in a walked on, traffic area such as this? I live in the Los Angeles area. Thanks !

Brick

Keep in mind that adding a layer of brick will increase the step height.

Thanks, the extra 1/2-1" height will not be a problem... anyone else have suggestions as far as installation/preferred thin brick product? Would appreciate your input!

Just be sure it is real clay and not faux brick, and make sure it is bedded well.
