Me

Painter and maker of wonderful pieces. I love old fashioned things and  making what is old new again. I live in South Florida making soaking up the sun and getting my paint on.

I never intended to be a Blogger I just a needed a website for my Art Business. I set up on Word Press and they just made it so darn easy to Blog. I never intended to refinish furniture, it started with a picture in a magazine that I wanted to reproduce.and I fell down the furniture refinishing rabbit hole.

    • Diana from the from you would have to use a paint technique because nothing will go through the glass to the silvered under surface. I would try using mildly diluted craft paint in brown or black whatever you prefer, apply it with a stencil brush which will give you a little more broken up coverage and then after that is dry spray it with water with a spray bottle and then spray the looking glass spay over that. I would spray a lot of water to get lots of drips and streaks. the looking glass spray will dry like a mirror and you will have a lot of texture. hope that helps

  2. thank you so much….. i am going to try and do some experimenting!!!!!!!! you have given me a good starting point…..mirrored wall is 12 feet high and 10 feet long….ugh!!!!
