Calligraphy on Antiqued Arabesque Mirrors

Mirror, mirror on the wall....who is the fairest of them all?  I have no idea, but I do ADORE placing calligraphy on these little mirrors.   They are roughly 4" and have an antique appearance in an arabesque shape.  I have used these a few times, but sadly I am only just now providing pics of one of those projects.  Please accept my sincerest apologies for the tardiness...and I DO detest tardiness :)  

These are great for 3 reasons:

1. They provide another canvas for me to place calligraphy on as you know that I so often become bored with the garden variety.

2. It provides a keepsake for your guests at your wedding or event that was calligraphed just for them 

3. It's nice for the ladies to have a mirror to check the lipstick etc without looking too vain...because you were checking out the calligraphy right?  Um hum.....

Cheers!  Peace, Love and Slinging Ink®!

What do you do when you receive a mirror that is bigger than you and unframed (hence unable to stand against a wall), but you need to place a calligraphy seating chart on it? Time to work on the floor. Let's make it happen. #calligraphy #calligrapher#handlettering #mirror #seatingchart#mirrorcalligraphy #love #floor #work#writing #write #penmanship #lovemyjob

Mirror Calligraphy Seating Chart - Houston Hand Lettering

I've calligraphed quite a few mirrors in the last few years, but this was by far the largest and it was just absolutely gorgeous in person.  It measured 90" x 34"...had to use a small ladder for this one.  This mirror was also cool as the client wanted a scattered organization with the lines as the mirror was much larger than what was needed for the list roughly 65 lines (about 100 guests).  The monogram was nice as this was the first mirror where a client already had a monogram that was used from the invitation and wanted to incorporate that with the mirror....and I got to play with illustration a bit with the florals around the monogram.....Yes that was freehand :).  Groovy times!  Cheers!
