How to Make Glass Into a Mirror With Paint

While making a mirror requires a precise silvering process, you can make glass look like a mirror with spray paint you can find at craft stores. Spray paint can create a glossy, reflective surface that gives the effect of a mirror. Use this technique for easy, inexpensive craft projects at home.

Things You'll Need

  • Glass
  • Fine sandpaper
  • Tack cloth
  • Krylon Looking Glass Mirror-Like paint or silver spray paint

Lightly sand the glass opposite of the side you want to reflect. Clean the sanded surface with tack cloth.

Hold the spray can about 6 inches from the sanded surface and spray the surface evenly with paint.

Let dry thoroughly before moving or handling. The glass opposite of the side you painted will reflect like a mirror.
