We all know that you can easily choose what the front of a mirror reflects.

But did you know you can also change what the back of a mirror reflects?

Before Maria added that Zentangle, all you noticed was this burn mark.

But now it reflects something entirely different.

Materials used:
  • Antique mirror with burn mark from cigarette or curling iron
  • Sakura® Pigma™ Micron pen
  • Several coats of polyurethane

That is beautiful! I have been tempted to try that, but was afraid that I would smear the design if I put a protective coating/sealer over it. Yours turned out very well!!!

It seems if you use a permanent marker you wouldn't have a smear. I draw on wood and coat it with clear polyurethane.

I just finished my own hand mirror, and posted a pic on my blog. Just have to pick up some polyurethane tomorrow to seal it. Drop in on my blog if you get a chance! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
