We Know Quality Kaleidoscopes!
Front Surface Mirrors | Kaleidoscope Mirrors
Kaleidoscopes today are more than just the cardboard tube with something magical inside. They are actually works of art and are carefully designed from the inside out. An important component of any kaleidoscope is the kaleidoscope mirror. At Kaleidoscopes To You, we don't just collect beautifully whimsical kaleidoscopes. Our online shop sells the high quality materials to make them as well.
There is no absolute perfect front surface mirror so if you have concerns about specific tolerances, please email us your specifications or tolerances.
Front surface mirrors are considered by kaleidoscope artists as the best type of mirror for kaleidoscopes. The coating on the front surface of the glass makes for an undistorted and extremely reflective mirror that has no tint. These are all essential qualities when handcrafting a kaleidoscope.
Worried about ordering a mirror on line? Don't be. We carefully pack and ship our kaleidoscope mirrors so that they arrive at your doorstep in one piece. If you are unsure of what to order, please contact our top-rated customer service department. They are knowledgeable and will help you through the process from ordering through delivery.
How do I cut First surface mirrors?
Cutting the front Surface Mirror. We do not cut mirrors for customers but we can offer these suggestions. Please cut Mirrors on an very flat surface. As our Front surface mirror is fairly thin we suggest a very flat surface free of debris or chips. We suggest attaching a straight edge such as a very straight board or better yet a straight metal bar to your work station or on a separate flat 2 by 2 foot plywood 1 good side surface and using a glass strip cutter. Such as this Glass Star model sold by stained Glass Supply Houses. http://www.delphiglass.com/mosaic-supplies/tools-supplies/glastar-circle-strip-cutter?source=froogle&gclid=CIWN2-_96bcCFfA7Mgodk3kAeQ Hope these tips help you off in the right direction.
