Paint Glass into a Mirror?


There are a few steps in how one can paint a glass into a mirror. The first step in turning glass into a mirror involves lightly sanding the mirrored surface and cleaning with a damp cloth. The next step is to spray the glass with a mirror spray paint which can be purchased at paint retailers and many craft stores. When spraying the glass, hold the can about six inches from the surface for best results. The glass needs to dry completely before it will offer the mirror appearance.
