I'm making a mirrow with a wooden frame around the outside and another
wooden frame set inside - with Mexican tiles fitted between the two
frames. The tiles will be cemented and grouted onto the backboard.
The inner frame will hold the mirror.
Now ... in the event that the mirror gets broken one day, I'd like to be
able to remove the inner frame. The problem I have is trying to figure
out how to prevent the cement and grout from holding the inner frame
permanently in place.
My strategy so far is to cover the inner frame with plastic wrap, like
Saran wrap. Then after the cement and grout hardens, remove the inner
frame and mirror, trim off the plastic, and reinstall the mirror and
Might anyone else have any other suggestions? I'm not sure if the Saran
wrap approach will do the trick.
