How deep will cream etch? Thanks for letting me know it was helpful! Also, I updated the links above for you to find. After the solution is filtered into the bottle it should look like clear water. Cork bottle tightly, and keep in a cool dark place and label it Solution No. Take one pint of warm distilled water and put it into a porcelain lined vessel, but it on the stove, and then put 24 grains of Rochelle Salts into it, and let this boil strongly for about one minute, and then add 25 grains of Nitrate of Silver, and let it boil for five minutes longer, take it from the stove and let it stand one hour or longer to allow the sediment to settle.
As soon as the solution is cool it is best to pour it out of the porcelain lined vessel; into some glass vessel or other porcelain lined vessel, as the vessel that you boiled this solution in will be quite dirty, and when it is allowed to settle in another vessel the solution will be much clearer when you go to filter it. You want to bottle this solution just the same way as you do the first solution and label this one Solution No. In the first place a clean room should be used for the work.
Place the glass on a level surface and bank the sides to prevent the solution running off, or place in a plating bath tube. It is not necessary that you should have a steam table in order to make good mirrors.
The glass to be silvered must be thoroughly cleaned as the least speck of dust, grease, dirt or finger marks will show and cause you trouble. Place wooden wedges under the corners of the glass having warm distilled water on the glass and change the wedges under it until the water lays in an even depth all over the glass; this is to warm the glass and get it even.
When you have the glass warm and level, raise one side or end level, raise one side or end and gently let all the water run off, now lay the glass gently back in the same place. Let the solutions stand on the glass for about 30 minutes; then tip the glass on one corner on end and drain off the solution - drain all that will run off; rinse the glass coating off thoroughly with distilled water, and stand glass on one end to drain and dry.
When dry apply backing paint. You will get a much heavier coating of silver by putting the bottles which contain your solutions into hot water a few minutes before you mix and use them. If the silver coating is not heavy enough it needs a second coat, which you can do by pouring on the solutions as you did the first coat, after the first coat has been rinsed off with distilled water and allowed to drain for a few minutes.
Do not let the first coat get dry before putting on the second coat. The best way to do this is by taking some polishing Rouge in powdered form, the same as jewellers use for polishing silverware, or powdered prepared Whiting which you can get at any drug store. Take the Rouge or Whiting , and put into a bag of two or three thicknesses of bed ticking or cotton flannel and sew this up; then put the bag into water to soak up.
Make a polisher by taking a piece of wood 4 by 4 inches [10 by 10 cm] and about 9 inches [23 cm] long and bore a hole in each end and near the top to take a broom handle, the handles should be about 4 inches [10 cm] long on each end of your polisher, so as to allow you a good hold.
Then get some felt about one inch [25 mm] thick; if possible to get - use the felt that harness makers use for padding harness - which is about one inch [25 mm] thick, as it is the best to use. Then screw the felt onto the bottom of the polisher, with brass screws.
Be sure that the screws are counter-sunk, so that they will not come in contact with your glass when you are polishing it and scratch it.
Once the felt is fastened on, put the polisher into water and let it soak. When polishing and cleansing your glass all you have to do is to take the bag from water, and squeeze a little of the Rouge or Whiting upon the glass; then take your polisher from the water, and with both hands take the polisher by the handles and proceed to polish the glass all over the surface that is to be silvered, being careful to polish the glass right to the edges.
This will take about 10 minutes. When glass is polished, rinse off with distilled water until it is perfectly clean. To make good mirrors you want to use a good grade of glass. The German or American Plate, either double or single, are the best cheaper grades to use, as they are veil polished and free from defects. If your local dealer does not handle this glass he can easily get it for you.
The Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. They have branch offices in most all of the larger cities - see classified phone book.
The very best backing paint that you can use is made by taking equal parts of White Demer Varnish and Asphaltum Varnish and mixing. If it is too heavy to work freely, add a little turpentine. Apply this paint to the silver coating as soon as it is dry with a camel's hair brush as lightly as possible - as the silver coating can easily be rubbed off.
One coat is enough, but if you wish to apply a second coat you can do so before the first coat gets thoroughly dry. For removing old backing paint, take strong lye and put it in a little water, and pour this on the old paint while the mirror is in a level position; and let it stand until the paint becomes soft; then take a small mop and mop it up.
Sometimes the paint is a little hard to remove, in which case you can take a strong piece of cardboard and scrape it off by grasping the cardboard in both hands, and pushing forward with enough pressure to cause the cardboard to go between the paint and the glass.
Another way is to buy a can of Boston or other kind of paint and varnish remover, and use according to directions. If the silver still sticks to the glass, pour undiluted nitric acid on it and let stand until the back can easily be removed with a mop or rag. Then clean your glass , as directed.
