2. Paint the frame with a general cheap white paint (or colour of your choice) the kind you can pick up in DIY stores.
3. After this base coat is dry, apply a top coat of white Acrylic paint. The reason i do this is the white Acrylic is ‘whiter’ and is wipeable once finished.
4. Once this is dry, you need to engrave your design onto the frame & mirror, for this you will need to have created a design and have some way of engraving it on there, there are lots of wood burning kits available on the market, which makes an affordable way to engrave wood, I use a laser. (I forgot to photo this bit, but once the mirror is engraved on the reverse, you need to paint over it with black paint, to help the engraving pop)
5. Put everything back together, including adding a stamp or label showing it was made with love, so your recipient knows how much they mean to you. (Or in my case a company logo label, with contact details etc on there).
