How does a kaleidoscope work? Well, it really is part of the magic and allure of a kaleidoscope. It is the wonder and amazement of gazing inside and seeing something enchanting. However, for a kaleidoscope artist, it is all about the materials and the design. Kaleidoscopes To You has been a part of the kaleidoscope community for decades. We do more than just sell and admire beautiful kaleidoscopes. Our company provides kaleidoscope artists the high-quality materials they need to handcraft their works of art.
Front surface mirrors are an essential element of the kaleidoscope-making process for perfect symmetry. The reflective and non-distorted quality of the glass is a part of the magic inside the design of a carefully crafted kaleidoscope. Our front surface mirror glass sheets can be carefully wrapped and shipped to your doorstep.
Since returns cannot be made on cut glass, please consult our excellent customer service department if you have any questions. We love kaleidoscopes as much as you do and understand the process from start to finish.

Customers Say "My front face mirrors arrived safely. How could they not? The care with the packaging was the BEST I've ever seen. Actually, it was impressive. As Arnold would say "Ill be back"!! Thank you."
"So glad I found out you were selling mirrors. My previous supplier was notorious for sitting on orders for weeks. You shipped same day! Thanks!" Leonard
"The first surface mirrors I ordered were exactly what I expected, and cheaper than most other web sites, and arrived exactly as expected. They were well packed and all six sheets survived the UPS trip with no damage. It is great to know that there is another source for kaleidoscope parts and materials on the web and that they are exactly as advertised. It was a great shopping experience, Thanks."-Alan

"Thank you for delivering the FS mirrors in perfect condition. I am not using the mirrors for a kaleidoscope but for my photography. The mirror gives a very good reflection.I wanted to show you the result of this so I send you 1 picture. I hope to make many more. If you want to use the picture on your website that is no problem (see picture to left)" Eric -The Netherlands
"I sent them an email with a couple of questions. They responded promptly, courteously, and professionally. The packaging of the material shipped (very fragile mirrored sheet) was excellent." - Raymond
