How Do You Frame a Picture?
The Passé partout performs as as essential material link between the artwork and the framework, at the same time providing for the best conservation over the passage of time. The mounting of works on paper must consider how all climates have a physical tendency to undermine the work. All things that can be mounted onto paper, including drawings, watercolors, lithographs, serigraphs, inks and photography have a natural decaying process, bleaching by light, fungi adhering to the glass or simply moisture in the atmosphere. Taking the material into account at the time of assembly can avoid money loss and many headaches. It is necessary to use Passé partout gums, glue and cardboard backing in order to suitably mount and conserve artwork. These materials have a neutral or alkaline pH and are available in the same variety of colors and textures that complement other cotton fibers and woods. Mouldings The mouldings for frame mountings are of different types of timber from national factories, obtained for their excellent quality. The models being sold have an expansive variety of combinations and mounting options. Cristal The glass being used is clear and opaque without reflection. There is a Museum Glass option, the high end premium choice for 98% UV light protection and 97% light transmission to the work. In some cases acrylic or acetate is used depending on the necessities of the customer, the work’s dimensions, its transfers or simply comfort. Mounting many objects are deemed by their owners to require conservation or exhibition. The option is available for boxing and moulding combined with a passé partout, a backdrop or simply an area between two panes, anything that provides for the clearest vision of the object. This setup is ideal for coins, banknotes, medals, sports objects, souvenirs or any other familiar objects that one wants to preserve and remember.
