Hi Everyone, Karenliz here to show you my new mirror. I work full time and I needed to small mirror for my office. A small one for that quick check before meeting with a client.
I took a wooden mirror that I bought at Ikea and painted it in a soft gray acrylic paint. I wanted it to look metallic but didn’t have any metallic paint but you can use acrylic paint in pearl. It gives it that metallic shimmer.
I then used Imagine Crafts Metallic Creative Medium in silver through the Butterfly Collage stencil (TCW554) and Word Association stencil (TCW527) to finish the mirror. The metallic medium is like modeling paste and it the perfect partner for stencils. Here is a close up of the medium.
It also dries faster than modeling paste. Here is my finished mirror.
A tip for using any type of medium on a mirror like this is the wait for each stencil design to dry. I added the circles first then waited for it to dry before adding the words. If you don’t wait for it to dry the stencil can hit the wet paste.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh wow – this is wonderful!
Oh my goodness!
You and I think alike. Even though our pieces are totally different, I used the same stencil words for my son’s tin box.
LOVE your mirror frame! Looks amazing!
Beautiful job, love the color and texture.
A great project!
