    I have two big mirrors that have come from bathroom renovations. I feel sure that I can use them in my display, perhaps something along the lines of a kaleiderscope. Has anyone any ideas of what I could do, or has anyone done something with mirrors like this before?

    Infinity mirror is the way to go. All you need is a mirror, some pixel strip and some window tinting film.

    Thanks, good idea. I googled how to build and came up with some relatively easy ways to construct. Even some ideas for puting pixels in other positions to enhance the effect. Definitely a way forward.

    Doesn't Pepper's Ghost use glass as the reflective layer not a mirror?

    Correct, a pepper's ghost uses regular glass. It doesn't use a mirror.
