Mid Atlantic Mirror Making #10
March 12, 2010 @ 12:00 am - March 14, 2010 @ 12:00 am EST
Delmarva Star Gazers will host the 10th Mid-Atlantic Mirror Making Seminar Friday March 12 through Sunday March 14, 2010, at Mallard Lodge, Smyrna, DE. Mirror makers and other attendees should check into the Lodge before 11:00 AM Friday. Activities begin at Noon, March 12, 2010.
The purpose of the Seminar is to introduce proven successful mirror making techniques and practices to those wishing to make their own mirrors. Special emphasis will be placed on successfully figuring the mirror. All mirror-making materials will be furnished and expert mirror makers will be available to guide each person's activities. We will begin with 6" F-8, 8" F-6, and 10" F-6 mirrors and tools with diamond generated curves; ready for 220 grit. Successful mirror makers will leave the Seminar with a fine-figured mirror ready for aluminizing. They will also have the skills, knowledge and confidence to repeat the process as desired. Although our purpose is to ensure each mirror maker is successful, there is no guarantee of results.
