Mirror projection

After a long weekend of research, with the help of my brother, i was able to find the way to project images onto mirror.

From water to ice, tracing paper to transparent sheets... broken glass and mirror.
The best was my housemates No. 1 Colour Match (car paint spray) and Lynx Dry!

In the video below I used Acrylic Spray.
The result was great but not the damaged mirror.

As in the video below, Lynx Dry showed quite similar result but it had that bit of extra.
Lovely smell and ability to draw on surface. Plus, I can reuse the mirror after the exhibition.

So, as I was happy with the accomplished weekend objective I went to look for the perfect mirror. I spend 2days searching AND THIS WAS the one!
