1. Begin by prepping your surface by cleaning the mirror. The mirror that I used in this project has small mirrors around the rim. If your mirror is flat, don’t worry it, you can use the same technique.

2. Working in a random pattern, paint each of the mirror tiles with a different color of gallery glass. If you don’t have mirror tiles, just paint small squares around the rim. You will want to paint the squares for at least 3 or 4 rows around the rim. Allow the paint to dry for 36 hours.

Tips: Never shake Gallery Glass! If you do you might get an air bubble. If you get an air bubble, just pop it with the end of a sewing pin. If you make a mistake, wait for it to dry and just peel the mistake away.


  1. This couldn’t have come at a better time. Im literally doing my face right now so I can head to Orlando and get some craft room organization peices from IKEA. Awesome…because today is my best friends BDay, too.

  2. Fantastic idea!!! Thanks!
