I like the use of a thin black frame. It matches up well with the black inside border of the image.
No glass...I tried it both ways but the glass detracts from the "holographic" look of the metal. It's amazing how much different inks appear printed on metal, they make each color look as if it's a metallic

Thanks. I really like your result. I may copy what you've done... still pondering.
My thinking has been that I don't want glass to detract from the visual experience.
I'm still checking out what I can do in the way of ahering hooks to the back of the metal, and then stringing wire between the hooks and hanging it without any visible distraction.
I always defer to someone who's wearing a beater, regardless of what else he's wearing.

You can buy corner mounts with padding that you can slide the corners of the metal into and have it hang that way

I decided to leave the glass on mine, but got some thin spacers so that the metal sits away from the glass. Looks fantastic!

Sounds like something worth looking into. Thanks!
