Infinity Mirror Complete Guide (2020)


Today I’ll be showing you guys
how to make an awesome infinity mirror. I will be taking you
guys behind the scenes at our factory in
Toledo, Ohio to bring you exclusive insider information
that nobody has ever seen before. [MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, I’m Amanda, [INAUDIBLE]
for Two Way Mirrors. Let’s get started. Infinity mirrors bring a
mysterious sci-fi [INAUDIBLE] to any room. They come in many different
forms, from beer pong, to chess sets, to tables, and
even star frames like this one. You can make the same effect
by combining a standard mirror with a two-way
mirror and placing a light source between them. You can get many
different effects by changing the type of
two-way mirror you are using. I love using LED strips
like the one on this table because it comes with a remote. You can change the
effects and the colors. I’ve even seen some that
move to the beat of the music to create a unique light show. [MUSIC PLAYING] Don’t worry, I will leave

recommended lighting solutions. By the way, if you

the basics, let’s go ahead and check out some
amazing designs we’ve helped clients create. [MUSIC PLAYING] I’m going to take you through
all the different types of mirrors you can use to
make the infinity mirror. Here’s the first one. The glass ceiling mirror
is by far the most popular. It is reflective on one
side and then see-through on the other side, 70%
reflective and 11% transparent. This creates a deep and dark
infinity with minimal ghosting. Leave a comment right
now if you would like to see us do a step
by step tutorial on how to make an infinity mirror
using a shadow box frame. You guys can let me know by
commenting “shadow box” below. The glass two-way mirror can be
tempered to be used as a table, or you can also laminate
it for extra safety. Next up, we have the
acrylic two-way mirror. It is 70% reflective
and 30% transparent. It is shatter-proof so it is
a great alternative to glass for that increase in safety. Aesthetically, this glass
is great for projects where you want to see reflection
and the infinity effect all at the same time. I was really excited to discover
that all the acrylics come in all of these awesome colors. They match any room,
and they can make your project one of a kind. Red, blue, standard silver,
gold, orange, gray, purple, green, pink, and bronze. Comment “I love colors”
if you love this idea and you want to use these
amazing color options in your next DIY project. Thirdly, the glass smart mirror
is great for infinity mirror projects when you want
the higher transparency with a double reflection. Just like the acrylic, but
is less prone to scratching. With all of our glass
products, the mirror coating is super durable
for easy cleaning. The infinity mirror
cube is a great example of a glass smart
mirror in action. Notice that you can
see all the reflections while also seeing the
lights in the middle. On to the next one,
the dielectric mirror can be used for an
infinity mirror when you need an extremely
transparent piece of glass. It is 45% reflective
and 55% transparent. Think of a car with
headlights, but the headlights are infinity mirrors. Because it’s
extremely transparent, it allows the light
to come through when the headlights are turned on. And then when the lights
are turned off on a car, it turns into an
infinity mirror. Pssh! Pure genius! And finally, for
budget projects, the two-way mirror
film is a great option. It turns clear glass
into a two-way mirror. It is 80% reflective
with 5% transparency so the LED lights will
appear to be darker. [MIMICKING DARTH VADER
BREATHING] [HUMMING “STAR WARS IMPERIAL
MARCH”] Come to the dark side. We have cookies and [INAUDIBLE]
for the ultimate Darth Vader [INAUDIBLE]. OK, guys. That takes you through all
the semitransparent mirrors. I want to take a
few seconds to talk about the most popular
base for an infinity mirror setup, the standard mirror. However, it doesn’t
have to be this mirror. You can use a first
surface mirror to make the LED lights
closer together. In addition, you can use any of
these semitransparent mirrors for the bottom mirror as well. For an example, I will place
two glass two-way mirrors in between a light so you guys
can see what it looks like. [MUSIC PLAYING] Do you remember
that car headlight project I mentioned earlier? That effect was achieved by
placing two dielectric mirrors in front of the
headlights with LEDs in between the two mirrors. I cannot math right now, but
I’ll just say that there are a ton of different combinations. You guys can order
samples to test out all the different
combinations and figure out which one you like best. OK, that takes you through it. I’m Amanda, and I’m outie 5000. [MUSIC PLAYING]
