1/8" thick mirrored acrylic... how to not burn the backing mirror?

Worked great! Thanks for the tip!

I was wondering what’s the best site to purchase mirror acrylic?

Well then you’re in luck because it’s been discussed a bunch, and you’re one easy search away.

Hello thanks everyone for the tips. Where is the best place to buy the masking? I can’t find it on amazon.

Search for masking source and there are tons of recommendations. Works for almost anything you want to buy. “Hardwood source”, “acrylic source”, etc.

My favorite masking thread is here:

Jimml, do you keep the masking on both sides?

No masking

Thanks

Can anyone here share some resources where they purchased mirrored acrylic? I am looking for some for a new project and would love some input.

Most of the places that sell acrylic, also sell mirrored - and the joy of acrylic is its standardized across the industry - so have fun!

If you don’t need very large pieces, IKEA is a steal. There’s acyrlic mirrors in the kids section.
