Make a designer fractal mirror

I keep coming across these unique fractal mirrors in my searches throughout the Internet, longingly wondering if they would ever reach our shores. But then I realised,   "Why Wait?"   So I decided to tackle this as a project for everyone to do... enjoy!


Demanding prices ranging from R2000 upwards, who can afford to buy one anyway!


Once I looked at how a mirror like this would be made, I discovered just how easy it actually is.

So here's my finished project and how you can make your own Fractal Mirror.



You will need:
1 x 22mm Pine - cut to 600 x 1000mm
20 x Mirrors 150 x 200mm
Polystyrene cubes, 20 each of 35mm and 25mm
Pattex PL700 Total Fix
Caulking gun
Sista F130 Acrylic Sealant
Rust-Oleum Painters Touch – matt black
Dala craft paint – matt black
2 x Picture hangers
180-grit sandpaper
Heat gun and attachment

Here’s how:

After mounting the mirror onto the wall you can finish off with a thin bead of F130 sealant around the outside of the frame to cover any gaps.



You can make your Fractal Mirror any shape or size that you want. Here are some examples that I have come across.
