[Glass] Mixed solution: glass + film
Hello MM Forum.
I’ve just bought two very old-looking mirrors, and I’m planning to build two twins magic mirrors.
Have been doing mirrors since a long time, and still have plenty of film from previous installations.
What I think was missing from previous experiences of mine (and what I want to avoid here) is the distortion film makes for bigger installations.
My solution is to use the mirrors inside the one I bought, by removing the Aluminium OR silver coating (where I’m going to place the monitor) while keeping the mirror as it is where elsewhere.
I’ll then place the film on all the mirror (or just on the glassy part).
Some insights about the chemical process:
- How to Remove Mirror Backing Paint I Using Multi-Strip
- Paint or Varnish or Mirror Silvering Removal Trick
Doubts / Facts? (will be updating this section based on your feedback):
- the edges between actual mirror and film mirror are possibly going to be super visible / evident
Has anyone of you tried this direction?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
@vongomben I personally think you will end up with an ugly rectangle hole where the monitor
is compared to the real mirror surface
