Default How to create glass


I'm struggling to create a glass looking surface on the magnifying glass. (See Attached)

I also want the "magnified/distorted image" you get when you look at somthing through such an object.

How do I get the look I'm looking for??
are there any tutorials?

Any help would be appriciated
