Step by step tutorial sharing how to transform a plain mirror with $5 of plaster, DIY Paint and candy molds.
This was my mirror before the magic happened. Just $10 at my local thrift shop, nothing special and looking kind of lonely hanging on the drab pegboard.
i created a quick video showing the process, with lots of tips
This video shows how surprisingly easy it is to achieve this look.
This is a screen shot of the plaster before I added the paint.
I used silicone candy molds, found at my local craft store.
Detail screenshot of the mirror after aging dust and DIY Paint.
Now it looks like a French vintage mirror.

This would be so pretty applied as an accent to furniture.

    What was the wax coating you used to adhere the dust? And was there a final coating over the frame after the dust was applied? Thanks!
