    The courses requirements are for a window mat over another mat. The window mat is Light Impressions Westminster 4 ply Bright white. The back is a little cheaper, Light impressions Exeter Conservation Board.

    I have always used linen tape, the kind you moisten with distilled water. What you want to do is mount the print to the overmat using as little tape as possible. Make a T shape with the tape and use that to mount the print. You have to be careful to use conservation materials because some people notice if you use a lesser quality mat.

    Thanks for setting that straight!
    When I saw that it needs water to activate, I though "Not after going through some much time&effort to dry the darn things flat!" At the time it was the only tape they had left in stock.

    So you would wet the tape, dab the excess water off, then apply?

    Just wet the tape with a clean finger and wait for the adhesive to set up. I wouldn't dab it off, you might remove some of the glue.
