Quite by accident, we discovered that the ink in permanent marking pens resists the chemical action of Mirror Remover and our antiquing compounds.
This allows you to draw a free-hand design on an unpainted mirror surface. You can remove the unprotected mirror to have a silver design on clear glass or you can antique the exposed silver to have a bright design on dark silver. See Antiquing Mirrors.
You can use the process on factory-made silver mirrors and mirrors you have made using our silver, gold, copper, galena and antique silver chemicals. For aluminum mirrors from Asia, use Gilsonite Asphaltum.
