Don Safety Gear
Safety first! Put on protective eye wear, a ventilation mask and chemical-resistant gloves; keeping them on for the duration of this project. Also, it’s also a good idea to work on this project outdoors, or in an extremely well-ventilated area.
Protect Work Surface
Cover work surface in thick plastic or a thick layer of newspaper to protect it from spillage.
Paint Mirror Back
Coat the entire back of the mirror with a layer of antique gold spray paint. This paint color will show through on the front side of the mirror, and will also protect the reflective coating on the back side from loosening further.
