Framing class - tra La!
Here is the one I framed myself..... so easy!
It's all in the tools. That is what I have heard over and over. If you have the right tools, any project is much easier. So, I had all of these neat tools to play with and the job was easy!
I have to purchase a few things..... but when I do, I plan to do more of this work by myself. The teachers recommendations were:
* Have some one else cut your mat - Museum quality - it looks better!
(unless you have a $600 mat cutter)
* Find inexpensive frames at garage sales, auctions, art stores
and change up the color with shoe polish or spray on paint.
* Choose soft colored mats - let the art work be the center of attention.
* Have fun with the Framing process - it doesn't have to be intimidating.
There was a lot more information given to us, but I thought these basic tips were pretty good.
If you have any great tips on framing.... pass them along to me, and I will share.
