The subject of how to mount your acrylics and watercolours comes up every so often and I have written about it myself before. Yet you always learn something new.
As I wanted to find out more about the do´s and don´ts I came across more interesting information on the web.
The first article I found dealt with mounting paper on a panel using heat activated adhesive. It gives you step by step instructions in pictures plus a video.
The next article explains a similar approach using paste adhesive rather than foil.
Personally I do not fix my paintings to boards very often. Any work on paper is usually mounted in a passepartout with a suitable backing. As explained by experts I give the painting enough breathing space within the mount. So it is only attached to the mount by double-sided tape at the top forming a kind of hinge.
Prior to mounting I make sure the painting is as flat as possible especially after the experience of a recent project. There I had painted on paper which was only 100g. So it was rather thin and prone to buckling. After a bit of research I managed to solve the problem.
The final article I wanted to mention today concerns framing. It takes a look at some of the aspects which you may want to consider when framing a work of art.
