Mirror repair

Resilvering mirrors tends not to be a DIY project. It is very expensive to have mirrors resilvered. A new mirror will typically cost much less than having a mirror resilvered.

"The supplies are expensive. One pint of each of the four chemicals you need totals about $120.00 (plus shipping). The price varies depending on the current price of silver." (Retrieved 05/19/02)

There is no touch up paint for mirrors. It takes at least 4 different chemicals to resilver a mirror, and depending on the price of silver, the price would be cost prohibitive for your size project. Companies that resilver mirrors tend not to sell these products.
