Mounting Difficulties

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

I'll admit it - I've been totally neglecting mounting my artwork. And for the simple reason that I was intimidated by the idea. What if it wrinkles? What if it tears? (Where am I gonna store it all?!)

Well, I'm over it. With the huge backlog I've accumulated, I couldn't afford to let it just keep piling up, so I took the plunge. And it turned out to be not so scary. Naturally, there is a significant danger of damage, but slow and steady does the trick.

It's actually just a combination of stretching watercolor paper and pasting wall paper in the end (see still moist results above). Silly me. Now if I could just find places for it all... any volunteers?

They are lovely. I'm glad the mounting went well and I hope they dried well, too. I saw an artist the other day (she shows her stuff at my yoga studio) and she had picture after picture mounted all wrinkly, and then was charging outrageous prices ($700+).
