Creating a decorative mirror

Postby BOBBYTON80 » June 4th, 2015, 6:05 am

Jess,

Loved your video. Wonderful job and very informative. You make it look so easy. I guess that is where experience comes in. I have a question though. When you blasted the back of the mirror to take the silver off it did not shade the glass. Why? I was also curious what kind of cutter/plotter you use? Thanks for your time.

Bobby-
Glad you enjoyed it, I don't know which video you are referring to, but that's Ok. (Guess-- the Witch?) Also, not sure what you mean by shading. In order to remove all the silver and paint, the glass must be completely frosted, leaving it with the grey look of frosted glass. I normally then paint the frost with a good enamel, to seal the freshly exposed metals, and block the view of any spiders, or whatever, who decide to take up residence on the backside.
I have two plotters, a Graphtec, (favorite), and a Summa. Both are worth the money. Hope this helps!

Yes, I was speaking of the witch. When I watched the video it did not appear that it was getting frosted because you could see the easel right through it. Thank you for clarifying that for me. How much would a piece like that go for?

There's no way for me to know what your market will support. If I remember right, we charged around $175.00 for it.

Yes I know, in New York I believe it would have a high market value. I personally think $175 is well worth it. Do you know what the material cost you?

The frame was probably $20.00, glass probably $30.00, & resist maybe $10.00. Just approximate.
