Mats are like a magician’s wand for framing! Here are 2 mat techniques that will completely transform your piece.
Adding a second mat to your piece introduces a second element of style and colour to your design. By selecting a neutral mat and have it exposed, as ‘a thin reveal’ will soften your piece in a subtle and stylish way.
Another amazing trick that is accomplished with mats is disguise! Vintage prints often have edges marked with discolouration. Keeping the signs of aging visible can look amazing in a design but when a client wants to cover them up for a different look adding a mat can completely conceal the unwanted areas.
