This isn't exactly a jewelry making question.
One of my customers is an antique store. The owner gives me lots of
challenging pieces to repair/restore.
She's asked me to re-silver a small, antique mirror.
I know how to make and use silver nitrate to silver a mirror (in
theory) and I've successfully mirrored the insides of Pyrex beakers
in my testing of the method, but I'm wondering what type/kind of
paint to use to cover the back of the newly silvered mirror.
Anyone have a clue for me?
