how to do it yourself

STEP 1

Wash and clean all mirror pieces.

STEP 2

Fix the white carbon paper with the stencil design over it using Prime Eezytear Tape on the backside of the mirror and trace the design.

STEP 3

Now scratch the design carefully using a knife to remove the mercury layer from the glass. Clean the glass dust thoroughly which were created due to scratching.

STEP 4

Dip the cotton buds into hydrochloric acid and rub it on the scratched portion of the glass to create evenness.

STEP 5

Now paint the corner designs with Fevicryl Glass Colours Solvent Based- Turquoise Blue, the flowers with Tomato Red and Orange.
Paint the leaves with Dark Green. Let it dry.

STEP 6

Take Fevicryl Shilpkar, mix the resin base and hardener evenly to form even dough.
You may sprinkle little talcum powder on your hands to avoid sticking.
