with a mirror instead of a piece of glass. Then someone reminded me that the glass that is normally used for this purpose is termpered.
But, because I would already have to laminate something to the back of the mirror to protect the silvering, my thought is tempering would be less necessary. If it breaks, the laminated backing would hold it together.
Any thoughts on what to use to laminate to the back to protect the silvering and to provide protection in the event that it breaks? Would contact cement be safe to use on the back of a mirror?
