Crafting Secret: How I age a faux antique "mirror".

~Make-do wash stand~

When all you need is a small old mirror for a primitive craft project- .....and You don't want to use paint stripper or bleach and all that jazz..... I use a soda can~
I puncture the can with a knife, then, wearing gloves, I cut out a section.
I age the "mirror" using a sharpie and watered down black acrylic paint~
I keep the glass in the frame, for extra shine.
Happy crafting!
