Review by Lyndee:
I saw this mirror on the curb other day and it was whispering sweetly, “Lyndee, take me home, make me into something cool!” I couldn’t leave the poor thing out in the cold so I did just what it asked me to do. Well, let me rephrase that, I attempted to make it into something cool. The ideas was great but sometimes, things don’t work out as planned.
I had a upper case living piece from my friend Lokhoy that I had been itching to put on something. What better than a mirror? Everyone should be reminded that they are beautiful when they look into a mirror, right? Right. I’m glad we agree on that. The edges of this mirror had some old crap on them so I thought I would paint a border and then put the sign on. I taped it off with painters tape and used a blue acrylic around the edges.
When I removed the tape it was not the crisp lines that I had dreamt it would be. Some of the paint pulled off, some had run a bit and it just didn’t look right. Not sure how I will fix this. Maybe a razor blade. Maybe peel it all off? Figure out a better paint to use on glass? Not put it on so thick next time? I don’t know. It’s sitting on my hope chest for now until I can come up with a way to fix it and how to hang it. A for effort. C for execution. You win some, you lose some, I guess.
