    The name of the paint that is made by Krylon is Looking Glass. The new video is online now. Go to Tuesdays show. There are a total of 8 segments. which are displayed on two pages. Click on the appropriate video and enjoy. I am off to find some mirrors. Would make a nice hostess gift with a vase of flowers. Unique gift.

    I forgot to say that in a few days you can watch the segment on the website. There is a time delay of two or three days until the webmaster can up load the info.

    The Resource for the paint is made by Krylon- basecoat mirror paint. Love the idea. I am on the hunt for some old mirrors. Thrift shop might be the best solution.
