Unfortunately i drymounted it.. It would never have sat flat in a frame otherwise.. It really was fecked
and so rippled that i couldn't really do anything else with it.
I now have a very pretty picture that would otherwise cost $600+
I'm pretty damn happy with my framing efforts today :pint:

It was a really tricky decision.. I really like plain black.. But the metallic Silver Matte really does pick out the metallics
in the poster when you see it in person. If i get bored or go off the silver i can just open it up and
pull it out.

I posted three pics in the "framed Mcarthy" thread so I will only do one. Again, I apologize for the picture quality.
