Intro: Optical Illusion Mirror. (infinity Mirror)
Hey, wanted to show you something different this time. This is infinity mirror. It creates an optical illusion and I will show you how it works and how to make one yourself in video below.
Also its cool to look at.
Step 1: Parts & Disassemble
For this project you will need following items:
A4 size picture frame
A4 size mirror
First take apart your photo frame and get out a glass, or as in my situation I had perspex acrylic sheet. Still works, except it is a little bit blurry.
Step 2: Tint a Glass
I'm sure it is easy enough but still. Cut a piece of mirrored film slightly bigger than glass. On adhesive side spray soapy water as shown. Than spray some more on glass. Place film onto a glass and using plastic card squeeze out all the air pockets like shown. Leave it to dry. Then trim sides and you should have Tinted mirrored glass.
Make sure you buy film that is mirrored on one side and see through on the other.
Next place Tinted glass into a frame so the mirrored side is facing up. Now get LED's and stick them onto a wall of the frame as shown. I suggest to watch video in order to see what I mean. :) The idea is to have LED's between two mirrors and since you can see through tinted glass you will see infinite reflections.
Step 4: Assembly
Now get your real mirror and put it face down into a frame. Secure back of the frame back in and turn on Led's.
