I have had this mirror since college. Most of my friends are aware that it has been 5 colors: Silver, Light Gold, Dark Gold, Red (or "Red-ish), and now..... RUST! I took a metal paste and covered the mirror with it. It was like covering a surface in thick paste. Once that dried, I took a chemical that causes it to rust. The directions say to apply a new coat of the chemical every 24 hours. It was really cool to watch it slowly rust. I did about 4 coats of the chemical until it was the color I wanted. I love it! Once a mirror in a college apartment... now a homemade vintagerusted mirror!
