After posting my charger plate sunburst mirror, I decided that it needed something more. . .

Another set of metal embossed rays was just what this mirror needed using easy metal embossing techniques.

So I choose another pattern and embossed a larger set rays to glue to the underside of the charger plate.

Turning the piece over, I finished the edges again using a decorative embossing wheel.

Still on the backside, I used a teflon embossing tool, to draw a line down the middle of each piece.

Each piece was finished with gilders paste to add color. I attached each piece to the back of the charger plate with glue. Then I glued a piece of felt over that – making sure to leave an opening for my wire hanger. The felt will protect the wall against the metal edges.

Here is a mirror after I hung it:

It was pretty, but not really right for my space and I felt it was still missing something. . . I decided to sleep on it.

This morning an idea came to me and I decided that what the piece needed was some antiquing. So I got an empty jar and added some standard black craft paint and a little water. I painted that mixture on each of the pieces, waited a minute and wiped it off.

This finally gave me the look I wanted.

Now I just need to decide where to hang it to show it off!
