I'm painting on this huge mirror (27.5" by 37.5") with acrylic paint, and since it's got wooden around the glass part I couldn't bake it in my oven, even if it did fit. if there anything i can spray or paint on over to seal it or just make sure the paint isn't going to come off?

Have you seen this (https://createlet.com/acrylic-paint-on-glass/)? There's all kinds of info on painting on glass.

Yeah, they only talk about baking it. I found a liquid sealant that I can use on the mirror so I don’t have to try to bake it!

What is the sealant?

It's called DuraClear Gloss Varnish, it's a polyurethane varnish by DecoArt Americana!
