What colour is a mirror? A mirror is a very good example of a surface that reflects light. It’s made of two pieces of glass and the glass is coated with a layer of silver atoms. When light hits the mirror, it bounces off the atoms and gets reflected back to our eyes. Sure, so what colour is it? The colour of a mirror depends on the colour of the object that’s being reflected. If you look at a white piece of paper, the reflection will be white. If you look at a black piece of paper, the reflection will be black. What is its default colour? It’s the same as the background. Chiki, what would happen if Pinocchio said, my nose will grow now?
