Thanks for the referral. I don't think the greenish tint is necessary,
in fact it might be restrictive in subliminal color symbolsim--but the
sigil on the mirror and on the receiver's lamen are vitally important
aspects of dark mirror magick when the reflection/distortion technique
is used. The sigil (signature of the spirit) tends to break up the
familiar reflection and specifically reconstitute the morphed
reflection as the image of the spirit after the black-out phase. We
use a  black grease pencil in actual practice but in the first video
(*The Magick of Solomon*) we used yellow so the sigil could be seen.
In *Dark Mirror of Magick* we were doing an actual operation and even
though the camera closes on the mirror, you can't see the sigil drawn
in black---but it is there.  We put fluid condensers behind optic
mirrors, not on the reflective surface. Hope this helps. ****

Good Magick!
