12x12 "Promo" Self Portrait True Mirror for Artists
Welcome to all Artists!
This page holds 30% off "promo" models of the True Mirror, which didn't pass the QC check, usually because of small and cosmetic issues like scratches or chips in the mirrors, or sometimes after a return. They are still great True Mirrors, where the optics are still correct. If you select a serial number, the image shows what the particular QC issues is and whether it is still available.
It's remarkable how much better self-portraits come out when using a True Mirror, which is an optically perfect, non-reversing, true-image mirror. Not only is there a crystal clear mirror surface reflecting full spectrum without glass shadowing, but the double mirror construction also creates a true 3D reflection compared to everyday mirrors.
Even more importantly, its really *you* looking back. Your emotional expression from whatever you are thinking and feeling is visible on your face and stays visible because your face keeps working properly within the True Mirror. And it simply doesn't work the same way in backwards mirrors, where we find that almost everyone settles into a stare within seconds of making eye contact.
Recently, a drawing class at SUNY New Paltz did both regular and then True Mirror self-portraits. https://www.truemirror.com/true-mirror-self-portaits/, and some of them came out really stunning. Check out the quality of expression, the enhanced 3D shading and the presence of the artist vs the other, generally more static and/or expressionless mirror version.
But if a promo isn't available, you can use promo code ARTISTSROCK to get 10% off at checkout. Share this idea with your friends or your art class, and maybe you can get some help paying for it. It will last for years if its taken care of properly.
Thank you for your order, and please post your results to you when you try it out with your next self-portrait, tag #truemirror
