Introduction: Mirroring Glass Bottles Tutorial & Etching It

This is just a idea I had of recycling old glass bottles and turning them into conversation pieces by mirroring them on the inside. This is really very easy.

Then I etch a design on the outside. The etching wasn't very noticeable, but you can also add paint which I show some examples of on my blog here: http://www.glassetchingsecrets.com/blog/how-to-mirror-bottle-etch-it/

    Very cool, thank you. I always wondered if there was a way to make a mirror myself

    Sorry, it's not. It is many for decoration/ hobby purposes. You might be able to find a good paint that seals it and is safe to drink off of, but I don't know much about it.

    Fun project, especially if you have some interesting bottles laying around. I do have a few questions. Where do you get your silver supplies? Are the supplies expensive?
