DIY Project #26: Create a Faux Antiqued Mirror with No Chemicals ended over 1 year ago

Along with our La Sardina DIY camera we’d like to present several DIY projects to inspire you. This project is a cool tutorial on how to make a faux antiqued mirror without using any chemicals by Honor Kristie. Have fun!

These mirrors are perfect if you need some decorations to be hanged in your living room! If you want to know how to do it, read the full tutorial on our very new DIY project page.

But what has this to do with the competitions section? Well, we’d like to try something new – complete the steps, then take one of your beloved analogue cameras (or the new La Sardina DIY camera), document the results and submit the photos once they are developed here. Please don’t upload any digital photos, don’t submit anything unrelated to this project (as much as we’d like to see you wearing oversized sunglasses, this is not the place) and watch out, the limit is two photos.

This is for fun and we’d like to present more projects like this in the future. See them all under diy.lomography.com. Let us know in the comments what you think of this and how you like this very project. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    this sounds fun & interesting, but I'm confused about the directions --- "Take the spray paint and lightly cover the glass with short bursts about 6" away." Do I take the mirror and spray the solution on the front of the mirror or on the back side of the mirror???

    Thank you! :)
