Hello,

I made my own black mirror. I bought a cheap picture frame and a can of flat black high quality spray paint. At home, I removed the picture and left the glass in. Since it's the backside of the glass for the spray paint, I cleaned the backside of the glass with 99.9% rubbing alcohol to be sure there were no smudges. I left the glass in the frame and spray painted the entire back with several layers of paint. When it dried, I cut up some cardboard to fit inside the frame then bent the metal holders back in position to hold the cardboard in place. Finished and ready for use unless you want to consecrate it. :fairy:

One tip I would add that I don't believe I saw mentioned, is...put a piece of black felt between your painted surface and the backing for the frame. I found the metal parts associated with the frame stand can scratch the paint off, then you have a speck to stare at.
