Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lporter134 Worked on plexiglass
I found only one can at my local store, but that was enough to try it. The can is really small. I sprayed the back of a scrap of plexiglass, turned it over and saw myself. It takes several very light coats. They dry quick. The result reminds me of old time mirrors. I wanted to use mirrors for the kitchen backsplash in my hundred year old home, but didn't want anything breakable. Trouble with this product is by the time I do all the work, it would have been cheaper to buy unbreakable mirrors. And then I would be concerned with grease splatter and scratches from cleaning.
Short version: it does what it claims. The result is not a true mirror. There is a cheaper way to go.
Plan to use the rest of the can on the inside of some glass vases.

I did my research online and found a chrome looking spray paint product with high reviews. Mirror Effects by Rust-Oleum. Found one can of it after shopping all over town today.. Paid $9 for a small 6oz can, rushed home to try it out. Just another dissapointing shade of shiny silver. If it was truely "mirror effect" I could have seen the dissapointment in my own face. NoT ImPrEsSeD!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Better for flat surfaces, but actually works
Used this for a small project, it was a bit tricky to paint the curved insides of my bottles, because the paint is super liquidy. I found I needed to spray inside my bottle and roll the bottle for a few minutes as the paint dried, otherwise it all just went to the bottom. But when it completely dried I was honestly surprised by how reflective my jars were! Makes a great addition to my craft supplies!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jason31 Pretty cool paint for making a mirror from regular glass
This is a cool new product. I never really thought of making a mirror before, but it works. My piece was a round glass from a small side table. I did not quite clean it enough, but got a nice mirror finish. Since it was a little dirty I got a swirl pattern. Aside from the swirl pattern, it's a pretty quality mirror, not blurred at all. It's probably not good enough to be used as an actual mirror, but for tables and other decorations it's good enough and very creative. I used mine with a stencil to make it even more unique.
The problem with this paint, is it remains easily scratched and this ruins the mirror finish. Since you paint the back side of the glass if you can protect it, then the front is perfectly safe and can't be scratched.
Also note, if not already obvious, this paint is only for glass and doesn't work on opaque material like wood.

I used this on my gym windows and it came out more as a metal so that u can see shapes but not a mirror.

I bought this paint from local Home Depot. I took the glass of an antique frame and turned it into mirror because the frame was so cool and with glass cost $1 at second hand store. I followed directions for preparation (microfiber cloth and glass cleaner), application (five light coats drying in between) and total drying after finishing. I now have a fantastic mirror for under $10 including tax. Whose the fairest of them all? Rustoleum with this great paint.
