Mirrors are commonly made of glass with a smooth, polished surface that forms images by the reflection of rays and light.
The original method of making glass mirrors consists of depositing a coating of metal, mostly silver, on the surface of clear or body-tinted glass. A layer of copper, which is in turn protected by a painted backing, usually protects this deposit. The silver gives the mirror its reflective properties.
Mirrors are manufactured in several thicknesses: 1/8″, 3/16″ and 1/4″.
1/4″ mirror is applied to walls, where 1/8″ is used when weight may be an issue such as door or drawer fronts, as well as placement into frames.
Mirrors come in a variety of colors: clear, bronze, grey, peach, blue, gold, black and antiqued.
