Designing A Custom Mirror

Designing a custom mirror can take a few weeks to make sure you are getting exactly what you want. There are four basic parts to working together to create a custom mirror; choosing a style, choosing a size and shape; choosing a color scheme; and approving mockups and final details. The creation process can be a lot of fun. But it does take time. Below is more about the process.

PART ONE: CHOOSING A STYLE

STYLE 1:
All Glass Random
Each tile cut by hand and randomly arranged
EXAMPLE

STYLE 2:
All Glass Uniform
Each tile placed in a uniform, repeating pattern
EXAMPLE

STYLE 3:
Mixed media* and Glass
Tile and mixed media placed in a uniform, repeating pattern.
EXAMPLE (with a lot of mixed media)
EXAMPLE (with just a few mixed media pieces)
    *Metal finishes are copper, silver, and (limited) brass / gold. I sometimes also incorporate glass beads into my mirror designs. 
     

    PART TWO: CHOOSING A SIZE AND SHAPE

    In order to figure out what size mirror would look best in your existing space, I recommend outlining the potential dimensions with painters tape. 

    No Painter's Tape on hand? Alternatives are computer printer paper, wrapping paper, or newspaper. Cut / arrange to size and tape to the wall. 

    This will give you a visual on how big the mirror will be and how it will look on the wall. Here is an example: 

     



    PART THREE: CHOOSING A COLOR SCHEME

    Once I know a little more about what you are looking for, I send samplesSamples are complimentary and are strongly recommended since computer monitors vary and glass colors and tile textures can look vastly different depending on the light where your mosaic will hang.

    PART FOUR: CHOOSING A PATTERN (if applicable)

    If you would like a custom mixed media and glass mirror, I create mockups for you to choose from (sent via email) based on your color and material choices.  I will also provide advice on grout and paint color based on colors / materials chosen + overall style of the mirror.  Here are two examples of what the mockups sent via email look like.

    No payment is collected until all details are agreed upon. Once style, shape / size, colors and pattern are finalized, I will send a custom / private link with your specific order details for you to purchase. I require payment in full in order to start and accept PayPal and all major credit cards.  PLEASE NOTE: Since I am usually in the various stages of designing several mirrors at a time, the best way to communicate with me is via email - info@GreenStreetMosaics.com.
