Product Description

Create A Custom 'Scope
Front surface mirror is made by a vacuum depositing a highly reflective aluminum coating onto the front of the glass. The light reflects off the aluminized surface without passing through a distorting layer of glass. In a kaleidoscope, it presents a brilliant image which remains clear and bright unlike regular mirrors, where images are dim or even blurry. Super-thin (approximately 1mm thick) glass. 12" x 18" sheet will create many kaleidoscopes.

Delphi Tip: Front Surface Mirror requires a lighter score to cut. The backing should remain on while cutting to protect the mirror from fingerprints and scratches. Use your hands to run the score, it should break easily with light pressure. Use a craft knife to cut the backing to separate pieces from the sheet, and remove the backing just before assembly for best results.

Pros : Nice reflective surface
Cons : Insanely thin
Other Thoughts : It warned me in the description, but this mirror is sooooooooooooo thin, don't sneeze or look at it sideways, 'cause it'll break (and not in a good way.) Probably expert glass artisans would be fine, but beginners beware - this mirror will break your heart.

Pros : Very easy to cut & save a lot of money. Score on the mirror side, then break it and flip to the blue film side & cut the film.
Cons : nothing.
