I want to fix a mirror into a wooden frame, and have decided to use silicone
Is it flexible enough so that the mirror won't get broken as the wood
expands and contracts?
The mirror is about 4 inches across the grain, and 10 inches with the grain,
in a pine frame.
I have now, thanks. I assume it does not have the same destructive powers
of silicone sealant, since it is meant for mirrors.
In another NG, they suggested panel pins. I would think I would have to put
a sheet of cardboard between for that, so I don't get a scratched mirror
Not ideal because the pin will be at an angle equal to the size of the
pusher's handle plus your fingers, and often the rebate isn't deep enough
for an angled pin.The beauty of the chisel method is that the pin goes in
flat *and* square and stops the glass rattling. For a one-off small mirror
you could always bend the pins flat.
