    Default Small two way mirror inside a normal mirror?

    Just curious do you think it would be possible to design a mirror where the entire thing is a normal mirror, but there is a circle area in the center that is a two way mirror just big enough for a pinhole camera? Would it be too obvious or would it be fairly undetectable?

    I think it's doable but could be expensiv (as custom made).
    But older mirrors sometimes have dark areas and it would be possible to hide a pinhole camera behind such area and/or scratch away a bit from behind the mirror if needed.

    I was also thinking about using a regular mirror, but adding a convex, circular two way mirror in the corner similar to what girls use to put on their makeup. Maybe then you could have that section as two way and hide the seams with the frame of the circular mirror.

    You could test this out to see if it can be done. Basically, there is only one glass surface. On the back of the glass surface is a reflective coating (used to be silver, now is something else). You would scratch off a small amount (say 1/4") so that it is not mirrored anymore in that spot. Then, go buy one of those one way mirror film kits and try to put the film on in the 1/4" spot to see if you can get it to match. My guess is that there would still be a small "crack" or line where the original reflective finish meets the new one way film. But if you get it small enough and maybe hide it with some stains (toothpaste splatter) it might not be noticeable in the short term. Long term though, someone is probably bound to notice unless the line is very small.

    Test this first on a practice mirror to see what your results are.

    A regular household mirror has these layers from the front:

    -Sheet Of Glass
    -Metallic Reflective Layer
    -Copper Layer
    -Protective Paint Layer

    The back of a regular mirror is not reflective, it is a layer of protective paint to protect the thin metallic reflective layer from oxidising and rubbing off.
    What I've done before is to try to remove the paint layer just until you reach the reflective layer. At this point you shouldn't be able to see any difference from the front of the mirror, but if you hold it up to the light it should be somewhat transparent.
    Whats happened is that you have removed the backing and are now left with the semi transparent reflective layer on the glass panel.

    Try on a small off-cut of mirror to test out your technique. I used some sandpaper, lightly rubbing until I could see silver appearing.

    You could also try using some paint thinners/strippers on the back of an old regular mirror. This may (didn't work in my case) soften the paint and should just wipe off.

    Edit: The thin reflective layer is very fragile and any damage to this layer will be visible from the front of the mirror.
