ENG. Making mirrors is a very delicate job that requires professional skill, great responsibility and high precision. It is not so easy to buy a vintage mirror in a frame that would meet all your wishes even in Kiev. The technology for the production of antique mirrors has been known for a long time, but modern living conditions have made their own changes. Currently, artificially created “antique” mirrors are at their peak of popularity, and the demand for them is constantly growing. There is a prejudice that it is not recommended to have a mirror with damaged amalgam in your home. Perhaps this is correct in relation to old mirrors, although antiquaries may object. Obviously, this does not apply to artificially aged mirrors. SEAPS provides all buyers with a huge selection of artificially aged mirrors, which are made of high quality materials and processed by experienced professionals.
The technology of creating aged mirrors in Kiev.
When the amalgam breaks down, natural aging of the mirror surface occurs. The main technologies for the manufacture of artificially aged mirrors are:
- Etching with chemical reagents.
- Printing in the form of a pattern from a thin layer of amalgam.
This type of decor, which is harmoniously combined with the rest of the interior items, will surely attract attention and, with the right approach to the design of the space, can completely transform the room. The mirror, which has been aged with the help of chemical reagents, looks very attractive and original. This method creates exquisite aged mirrors while retaining the original ability to reflect objects. This type is used in all kinds of mirrors, original stained-glass windows and in various pieces of furniture. The paint for protection is selected accordingly.
