Mirror Etchings

Western Reflectionz utilizes a decidedly different approach — mirror etching done 100% by free-hand; directly applied on the mirror face. Hand etching of mirrors requires a very soft touch that must also be extremely meticulous. The design is permanently applied directly onto the mirror face using a hand held, diamond tipped stylus in much the same manner as holding a pencil in your hand and drawing a design on a piece of paper.

This process preserves the design while still allowing full functionality of the mirror creating a unique, one-of-a-kind, work of art. Because no two hand strokes are identical; each design is an individual endeavor and cannot be mass-produced or “copied” and will always remain a truly one-of-kind, classic masterpiece. Therefore, each and every Western Reflectionz etching comes with its own certificate of authenticity.

The cost of each mirror varies with the mirror size, the complexity of the design to be etched, the time required to complete the etching and whether or not framing is requested or has been done.
