How to antique a mirror [JB says--I did this on small craft store mirrors for a project. I like it, but it was a lot harder to get the paint off the backs than I thought. Also I would leave the acid on for a shorter time, then see if it needed more. I flew a little close to the sun on some of them! Last, I used a combo of antique bronze and gold spray paint for my spots.]
