How to Make an Infinity Mirror [Complete Guide With Pictures]
Infinity mirrors projects are the greatest and easiest optical illusions to create through some types of mirrors. We are going to use three simple things to create a great project. These things are: two mirrors and LEDs. As these are combined they creates the illusion that the lights are trailing off to infinity. You can change its effects in warty of ways as you want to decorate.
Most commonly we uses a glass two way mirror and a standard mirror to create the effect. People are making infinity mirror to decorates their tables their windows their whole walls and many more.
In this project we are going to make infinity mirror in simple home make frame with electrical wiring strip. A strip of LEDs is using for light and two mirrors.
Things needed for this project
- Glass Two Way Mirror (or other semi-transparent mirror)
- Standard Mirror
- Lights to put in-between (LED light )
- A simple frame to hold the mirrors on a pacific place.
A two-way mirror refers to glass that reflect on one side and clear on the other. This type of mirror allowing persons on one side to see through while people on the other see a reflection of themselves. Most people says it a two-way mirror/two-way glass or windows dark color glass.
LED strip used in Infinity mirror
The 3rd thing which is used in infinity mirror is LED strip. LED strip or simple led can be used in this project. Any how to make this project beauty and effective you should used colored LEDs strip.
Step 1 Make a frame for Infinity Mirror
Step 2 attach LED strip inside the frame for infinity mirror
Step 3 Attach Stranded mirror on a Side of Frame
Step 4 Place One sided mirror on other side of frame
Mirror effect can be changed by changing gapes between mirrors
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use two standard mirrors instead of two way glass?
No Two standard mirrors(glass) can not create the infinity effect. The two way glass allows just the right transparency and reflection to produce infinity. Mirrors are many types you can use any other type of mirrors to create infinity.
Can I use a regular frame for my infinity mirror?
Yes you can use regular frame or you can use it without frame but gape between mirrors is necessary. LED strip should remain between mirrors.
Does the size of my project matter?
No size of project does not matter but gape between mirrors will effect the infinity . You can make a small functional mirror as well as large gaming table.
