Middle mat is a reverse bevel cut 4-ply metallic gold to add a little "zing" to liven up the party a bit. Molding is a subtle faux leather outer and a bronze/gold inner. Glazing is museum glass.

I think he meant a literal frame containing the person Aaron Horkey...

Those framed letterpress pics are nuts! So glad I picked up both letterpress suites last week (they arrived yesterday from Australia!)

Today after a vegan lunch I robbed the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, using an impeccably lettered hand-written note passed to the teller, informing said teller than an army of flying manta rays was going to rain hell upon her and the rest of the bank staff if she didn't comply. She needed help reading it at first, but she got there after a few minutes. I escaped via Faberge carriage. They'll never know it was me that robbed the bank, for you see: I framed Horkey.

You can't really tell with this exposure, but the moulding has a visible wood grain. It looks more smooth in the photos. Also, double 8-ply mats :D . I sort of wish I'd put a white one in between after seeing jcbudny's stuff, but I think I'm calling it done.

Don't, what you have is perfect. Great job.

Looks so clean, KSUvet :clap: Definitely agree with mistersmith that you don't need to change anything.

Thanks for the positive feedback, fellows! Adding one more to show the moulding a bit better. :)
