[Source] Cab mirrors


#1

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have a source for Cabochon mirrors. This is the really
thin material put in back of some cab. to give them more life and
better color. The pieces I have seen look like plastic coated metal.
It’s flexible and water proof.

You might check with the Stained glass suppliers. They have front
surface mirrors at about 1/16Th inch or so thickness. You can cut it
with a regular glass cutter. After gluing to the back of your cab or
cab material you can then grind it to fit. It is used in the making
of kaleidoscopes.

I have bought it - probably at the craft stores - it’s also called
Milar

You get some mylar pretty much any time you buy a candy bar,
individually wrapped hard candy, protein bar, many chips, or a flat,
silver (as opposed to the classic round, colored) helium baloon. I
use bits from these sources.
