Customized Mirror with an Altered Carrom Board

Hi Folks!

Vini here! Hope you all had a wonderful Diwali.

This is the era of recycling, reusing and reducing waste! I was wondering what to do with an old worn out carrom board. It was not in a condition to be donated or used by someone else. I decided to convert it into a mirror frame and the new multi-surface archival paints came to my rescue! Look what I did in this easy and attractive project.

  1. I first painted the borders with 2 coats of black gesso as the borders were made of a paper like material.

  2. Then I divided sections of the frame with masking tape.
  3. In the next step, I drew free hand Aztec and mandala like designs all over the frame with a white pencil.
  4. Now was the turn to use the magical archival multi-surface paints! I used the some bright colours.
  5. Next I highlighted the shapes with the ready to use Camilin white liner.
  6. Once dry, I varnished the frame with 2 coats of Little Birdie Deco Magic varnish – gloss.
  7. I pasted small mirrors with heavy gel medium and a large mirror cut to size to complete the mirror. Here is my final mirror.
