This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Home made mirror Bocarina in minutes?

I found a japanese product dedicated to sci-fi modelists...

It is called Kosutte-Ginsan and is a little kit containing a pair of plastic gloves, a cotton mask, a very soft cotton pad and a small round box which contains a matte dark grey powder.

If you rub some of this powder on any plastic item, it immediately turns into a very thin chromium-mirror coat! So, I applied the Kosutte-Ginsan on a Bocarina...

I first chose a orange one, but a much better result was obtained on a black one. It took me 2 minutes to chrome the boccy, and it was as easy as it looks to be! Only problem: any tiny flaw is visually "enhanced".

Where to find this (rather expensive) product? I found mine in Spain, there.
