Demonstration mirror


Date: Sun Mar 03 2002 - 13:38:09 PST

I am interested in either constructing or obtaining an overhead mirror that
will reflect my demos to my classes. We use them in my watercolor society
workshops. Do any of you have them? I want to know how effective they are in
the classroom.

My classroom is small and I have very little wall space to demo-only a 4 foot
bulletin board and a drawing board mounted on the back of a bookcase. The
kids in the back have a real hard time seeing.

I have seen these made with reflective mylar stretched on a canvas-like frame
and it is then supported on the sides by uprights that allow the angle of the
frame to be adjusted. They seem to work quite well at the workshops with
even 50 or more people able to see the demo.

Does anyone have plans on how to make it?
