Believe it or not, there is more than one type of mirror. First surface mirrors reflect about 94-99% of incoming light, while second surface mirrors (everday mirrors) reflect about 80-85%. Because of this, first surface mirrors provide clearer reflections without the subtle ‘ghosting’ effect that second surface mirrors do. Since they provide almost absolute reflections, first surface mirrors are awesome to play with symmetry. Sit your favourite mug, pen, shoe or personal object on top of a first surface mirror and explore all the reflective possibilitites.
