I have VDB that I turned out nice and want to mount it in such a manner that the deckled edges of the paper will show. I always tear my paper. It is a copy of a photograph taken in a photo-booth about 35 years ago. The subject is my sister when she was a teenager and who sadly passed away Sunday. The print is 5.5 x 7 on an 8x10 sheet of Arches HP watercolor paper. I plan on putting it in an 11x14 frame.
My question? If I mount the print on foamcore or matboard without an overmat, how do I keep the print from contacting the glass. Should I use narrow strips of matboard under the frame and between the glass and print?
The print will be displayed at the memorial service Saturday, so I need to move on this rather quickly.
thank you so much for your help.
