If you learn by watching other people, just go on Youtube and there are countless videos of people making their own :D

How to Make a Scrying Mirror

Go to a thrift shop and search for a picture frame that you like. Most people prefer a round frame for scrying. Mine is oval and I've known people to use square with great results, I don't think the shape of the reflective surface makes that much of a difference.

Purchase the frame you like. Come home with it, clean it and polish it up. Remove the glass or acrylic out of the frame.

Lay the glass on newspaper. Clean it thoroughly with a window cleaner and a lint-free cloth. Allow it to air dry. Make sure it's streak and smudge free.

Paint the surface of the glass with metallic or glossy black paint. I like acrylic because they dry so quickly. Do as many thin coats as you need, getting them as streak-free as possible. You want complete coverage. Just let each coat dry a little in between.

When it's completely dry, put it back into the frame, painted side on the inside. Spray and wipe the front of the glass now to remove any smudges and streaks.

Wrap it in a soft cloth and store it where no one can bother it.
