About this title


Step-by-step, easy to master techniques for the beginning framer.
If the idea of framing a piece of artwork—whether it is a watercolor, pastel, oil painting, photograph, or embroidery—intimidates you, Matting and Framing Made Easy is the book you've been waiting for. This comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide covers everything you need to know in order to make a high-quality frame. Using simple, step-by-step demonstrations, certified professional framer Janean Thompson covers six subjects:
· Measuring

· Mounting

· Matting

· Glazing

· Framing

· Hanging Artwork
By following the detailed instructions in this fully illustrated book, you'll master the fundamentals of framing and be inspired to custom-design projects.


Since the cost of framing often exceeds the price of the artwork itself, it pays to know how to do it yourself. 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.
