Not the mirror side, the grey side.
The mirror is still there, protected with brown paper, except where the paper had been scratched away before I got it.
When I have finished my aluminium piece I am going to try the mirror.
Wolffie, that 'mirror' must have been a custom product because as Xxray says, the grey side is the mirror side. At least on standard mirrors, whether glass or acrylic.
The grey coating is not the 'mirror' per se but a protective coating of the reflecting layer. Although the process is still called 'silvering', the 'silver' nowadays is mostly aluminium and the grey coating is to protect this so-called 'silver' layer.
I am truly curious as to what you got there, but interesting it is.
By the way, I have seen highly reflective 'chrome' in rattle cans. Never tried it but you have given me an idea there.
