I have read about this technique. There is a little more to it than taking a mirror and painting it black.
Use a clear piece of glass. Paint it black on the back. Spray paint is ideal to avoid any smudges or brush strokes.
The idea is to create a black void to stare into. You look into the side that is not painted.
A frame adds to the impression of looking through a window into darkness.
If you believe in psychology you might think of this as projecting your subconscious thoughts onto a blank canvas.

I did it when I was young, I got the idea from a book. I waited till midnight and then sat in front of my wardrobe mirror in the dark, only with a candle.
Its hard for me to explain this but you're suppose to stare into the mirror but not stare at it, and not at your reflection, sort of in between. I tried not to blink so much either and just relax.
Soon my face started to change then in the mirror a scary looking old man appeared, he had a crooked smile with missing teeth and had messy white hair everywhere all over and around the face.
Ever since then I believe I've been haunted by him, i got nightmares all the time and experienced a lot of paranormal activity. I even saw his huge face once after i woke up from a nightmare, i will never forget it.
Recently I got fed up it also because I have a child now and contacted a priest, whos a friend of mine, to do a cleansing/blessing on me which has worked so far.
So yes my advice would be not to mess with it, seriously. I'd love to hear honorseed thoughts on it.
