Matting and Framing Made Easy

$9.99

Author: Thompson, Janean (A)
Framing can be difficult and costly for the novice, but thanks to this book, now anyone can make a frame. In simple, step-by-step instructions, it covers six subject areas: measuring; mounting; matting; glazing; framing; and hanging artwork. 150 color illustrations.
This book offers thorough background on all the basics–measuring, mounting, matting, glazing materials, and frames–for both archival and non-archival techniques. Even if you’re not ready to invest in specialty tools like a mat cutter or miter box, you’ll find useful instructions on working with ready-made frames using simple tools (a ruler and utility knife). In addition to coverage of traditional artwork, directions are provided for specialty items, such as tiles and needlework, and for incorporating slightly dimensional items on the mat to accent the framed piece.
