I started with a primer & my mistake was apparent right away, I did not shake the can well enough & I was left with a mirror that looked like a flocked tree. My family lives in Phoenix & every year they would get a flocked tree. It has to be the ugliest, fakest looking Christmas tree out there, but people pay alot of $ for the tree lots to flock their tree.
see, ugly flocked tree
any who, @ that time I could not do anything about it so I thought I would just go with it. I prayed the entire frame with unshaken primer & the frame is now very textured. Very ugly texture. I let fry & spray on Krylon Bright idea. I applied 2 coats, then a high gloss top coat. It looked horrible. So horrible I didn't have the heart to take a photo of it. I then got a brilliant idea that maybe I could take a sanding block & sand all the 'fuzzy hard texture' off & start over. Problem was, this mirror has lots of crevices that you cant reach with a sander. How about a sand blaster? That would work, but who wants to hassle with a $8 mirror? So I just left it alone after trying to remove as much of the primer as I could. I don't think it looks too bad considering, but I will still be on the look out for one to replace this one. Anyone want a good deal on a yellow mirror?
