Not a mirror effect
I read mixed reviews on this and thought for $9 I'd give it a try fixing my antique mirror that had a bunch of spots that needed filled. I followed the instructions, at 5 coats it had no reflection after 10 it still looked like garbage. Streaky hazy nothing like what a mirror looks like.

That's odd! To ensure the proper finish, Rust-Oleum Specialty Mirror Effect Spray Paint must be applied to the reverse side of the glass. If applying to a mirror, it needs to be applied to the back of it, as the paint will otherwise have a hazy gray finish.

    I bought a new cabinet with clear glass, and used Mirror Effect in an attempt to match the mirrored cabinet next to it. The spray mirror reflects only about 75% of the light that a true mirror reflects.

    Thank you for sharing your experience using our Rust-Oleum Specialty Mirror Effect Spray, David. When applied, this coating creates a decorative mirror effect on the reverse side of the glass surface, however, the finish will not match the reflective ability of an actual mirror. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

      Let's see what we can figure out Gerardo. For best results using Rust-Oleum Specialty Mirror Effect Spray paint, hold the can 10-12" from surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion. Apply using very thin coats, allowing the paint to dry for 1 minute between coats. Apply up to 5 coats to achieve the desired mirror effect. Paint will rapidly change in appearance and mirror effect will appear while coating dries. The painted side will appear dull, with the reverse side showing the mirror finish.

      Please keep in mind that the way the Rust-Oleum Mirror Effect Spray Paint works is that you need to apply it on the inside of the surface you're trying to make look like a mirror. For example, if you spray the outside of a glass vase, it'll look silver. If you spray the inside, it'll look mirrored. We hope this helps! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1 Rustoleum

      I had to spray several coats to achieve the desired effect, but it worked shiny and reflective.
