Two-way mirror

To make this type of mirror (which are also sometimes referred to as one-way mirrors), a thin layer of metal—usually aluminum—is applied to the front of a pane of glass. The layer is so thin that only half of the light that hits it is reflected back; the rest goes through the pane

For my two-way mirror i brought a piece of pesrpex instead of glass (much cheaper) and then brought a reflective film which i applied onto the perspex after washing it throughly with fairy liquid then squeegee the water off completely. Then i laid the foil on top to let it stick and cut to size.

my two way mirror created using reflective foil on perspex and hung from frame. 

When there is light on both sides the 2-way-mirror will act the same on both sides with neither being only a mirror or only see-through.
