a place for zinesters - writers and readers
The 1st issue of my new zine project revolves mostly on identity, so i'd like either the cover or a page of the zine to be a "mirror" but then again a real mirror would weigh too much (ergo high shipping cost). Any ideas onw hat material would show reflection?
at first i was thinking of just using foil... but 1) i havent thought of how to stick it on the page and 2)it may also tear too easily and may crumple--the creases wont look good.
any ideas/suggestions would be awesome!
The one thing that comes to mind may be trying to use metallic or a reflective sheen gift wrap paper. You may try scouring a Hobby Lobby or Michael's if either are in your area. Also, if you do find this type of gift wrap, odds are good you may find purple, green, and blue hues, possibly red or pink as well.
It may not be much help but is the one thing that came to mind. Good luck.
You can get this plastic mirrory sticky back plastic stuff. I've forgotten exactly what it's called, but I've seen it used in childrens books before. It's basically a preglued mirror foil you can cut to any shape.
There are two things that I can think of that might work. I've seen large sheets of mirrored poster paper at craft stores, and maybe dollar stores.
The other thing is the mirrored sticky plastic stuff. I've seen that at a hardware store where they sell similar stuff in different patterns for lining shelves. M
