Re: Matte on top of signature?

Re: Matte on top of signature?

I'm with Peacedog on this one. As long as you're using good quality preservation-friendly mats there shouldn't be a problem. And yes, if the art is signed in ink you're doing a good thing by keeping it out of the light and slowing down the fading. I've never really thought about the issue of graphit...

Re: Floating a Print

Awesome, thanks. I think the only thing holding me back from trying CHR1S' method is the having to stand there and stir wheat paste for 30min straight.... I made a small amount in the microwave for a little print last week. Took 15 seconds total (they recommend stopping and stirring every 10 second...

Re: Framed by Corey "Peacedog"

Sorry the only German I know is "Schiess den Fenster" [sp?] from Die Hard. That translates roughly into "fudge the windows" :rolling: Not quite. It means " Shoot the window." schiessen= to shoot scheissen= the fudge And it should be " Schiess das Fenster" not den Fenster. Fenster is neuter, not mas...

Re: Floating a Print

[quote="FramerDave... How long this takes will depend on how wet your paste is, temperature, humidity, the phase of the moon and how you stick your tingue out while doing it. Usually a minute at most. ... That's in dry conditions... sometimes during humid weather you have to wait quite a bit longer...

My pleasure. The Grumble is fun and all, but it's fun to have other outlets too.

And not that I have a filthy mouth but it's nice that I can say crap and dude here. Can't I? Sometimes they're very useful words.

Re: Floating a Print

FramerDave - When I get to the stage that I have my print mounted on the pedestal foam core how do I attach that to the backing material and get it nice and straight within the frame? Seems like if I used ATG tape I wouldn't be able to move it around for positioning. You're right, and I NEVER trust...

Re: Floating a Print

yes if you get it too wet, you could conceivably get the print paper too wet.............having said that, you would have to be pretty out of it to wet the hinge that much and then apply it to print. I highly recommend messing around with hinging paper on some scrape material first, you will quickl...
