    Mirror on clear base..

    Probably a dumb question, but I have very little experience with mirrors on a clear base. If you put a flash silver mirror on a clear base, will the backside of the lens look

    A) clear
    B) gray
    C) blue
    D) other?

    THANKS!!

    depnds on the mirror, but more on the grey spectrum. Even with a back side ar, the backside reflection is nearly intolerable.
    I bend light. That is what I do.

    Looks cool from the front, though.
