I am trying to a make a mirroed disco ball look as authentic as posssible. Do you have any suggestions on what I should use to make the tiling appear somewhat reflective?

I'm working on a disco ball for a charity event next weekend. I will be carving a half ball (all I need since there will be a disco duck on top icon_biggrin.gif ), covering the ball with black fondant, then adding about a million precut MMF tiles that I tinted gray and painted with silver airbrush paint. I'll attach the tiles with piping gel and then give the whole thing a once-over with some silver disco dust to make it even more reflective and shiny.

Hope that helps. Sounds like I know what I'm doing, but I hope it all goes as planned!

Why not just cover it in gray fondant and use the dresden tool to impress the fondant to look like tiles? From there, spray it with silver (or airbrush it) and then use luster dust if it needs it?
