Can I Paint Mirror Over Black 3.0?Updated 4 months ago

I would absolutely NOT recommend painting mirror over black 3.0, it will react and go totally weird. If you wanted to do a black base coat underneath, my raven potion is great, but in most cases you won't need a black paint underneath. You can paint mirror directly over raven or any other ordinary art shop acrylics (not things like black 2 or 3.0). However if you are going to use an acrylic like raven as an undercoat it is vital that you make sure you get it very flat - no brush strokes! So you need the tiniest bit of acrylic on your brush, really spread it out, use a soft brush, you need a very even flat surface or you will get bumps in your mirror layer.
