"Creating a distressed mirror"
I would like to create a distressed or antique look on some new mirror. I have tried paint strippers and a really strong stripper called Kitzit. No luck.
Do you have any ideas for removing or oxidizing the back of a mirror.

Did you ever receive a response to your inquiry about distressing a mirror? I can remove the paint back with paint stripper but it is too strong for the silver and removes it all.Dave Rausch

Try nitric acid.have heard that achieves the desired result.Nikkimonger

Nitric acid is a very dangerous material -- so that advice would only apply in a full industrial setting by personnel who have had proper hazmat training. Good luck.
