We decorate the mirror with chemical matting using IVSATIN paste.

This workshop contains a step-by-step description of the method in decorating a mirror with chemical matting by using IVSATIN paste. We will show you how to decorate a mirror with a unique pattern or ornament using your own hands at home.
First prepare the mirror sheet itself. Cut the desired shape and dull the sharp edge of the mirror with a thin sandpaper.  (Make sure the sandpaper is soaked in water as not to spoil the edges of the mirror.) Drill holes for the shelf and lamp, if any, for mounting on the mirror. Then we prepare a stencil on a self-adhesive basis for transfer; to a mirror. Remove any unnecessary image elements that will be etched and attach the mounting film to the stencil. This is done so we can transfer the stencil to the mirror. Next, carefully transfer both parts of the stencil to the mirror. To do this, first place the stencil in the right place; temporarily securing one side with tape. On the other side, bend or trim part of the base (substrate) of the self-adhesive stencil.
Centimeter by centimeter, smooth the stencil film and remove the substrate; glue the stencil to the end.
After applying the stencil, smooth the film with a roller, remove air from under it, and remove the mounting film.
Press the stencil with a roller against the glass, removing all the air that has fallen under it.
If an air bubble forms, pierce it with a needle.
Do the same with the second part of the stencil. Remove the mounting film from the second half of the stencil.
We leave the mirror alone for at least 15 hours so that the adhesive layer dries and the adhesion of the film is enhanced.
At the next stage, it is necessary to close those parts of the mirror that are not intended for matting; with vinyl adhesive film or waterproof paper.
Now that the mirror is ready, apply IVSATIN Matting Paste to the stencil film (not the open glass) but next to the image.
Try not to drip on exposed areas of the mirror, otherwise the traces will remain in the form of white, brighter spots.
Then very quickly, using a spatula, evenly spread the paste throughout the image.
Do the same operation immediately with the other side of the mirror. Similarly, with quick strokes, apply the paste on the entire surface of the stencil with a layer of at least 3 mm.
After 15 minutes, collect the paste back into the container for reuse. Wash the mirror with running water and soap and remove the stencil.
The matte pattern on the mirror is ready!
Then we attach the accessories to the mirror. We install a shelf, fixtures and enjoy the result!
And here is another mirror.
Remove unnecessary stencil elements.
The blade is photographed for comparison to show the capabilities of the plotter and chemical matting.
The thinnest line is 0.4 mm! Transfer the stencil to the mirror.
Remove the mounting film.
Apply IVSATIN glass matting paste.
After a few minutes, collect the paste in a jar and wash the mirror with soap.
We have gotten such a great result!
Unfortunately, photographing a mirror is extremely difficult, so it is impossible to convey the beauty of a matte picture.
