Getting it All Assembled

  • Clean the glass without smearing.

  • Check for scratches

  • Check positioning of image in mount (if any)

  • Secure un-mounted artwork to a support board leaving bottom of board slightly proud to carry the weight. This will minimise kinks and cockles.

  • Place glass on sandwich comprising the image, mount or support board and hard backboard.

  • If sandwich is free of dust, overlay the rim of the frame on to it. (If the frame is blemished the fault will probably be less noticeable on the bottom).

  • Check that the artwork is square and centred in the frame.

  • Turn over frame and sandwich and secure down with supplied tabs. (if these are missing squeeze in panel pins).

  • Seal round the back of the frame with tape to discourage flies and atmospheric pollution.

  • If the picture is to hang, measure down one third from the top and screw in screw eyes to each side of frame and tie cord across them.

  • Plates are a more secure wall fixing alternative and a strut back will make smaller pictures freestanding.

N.B. Where the artwork and glazing touch they may eventually bond together never to be parted (especially photographs).
