The Masks that I did had wire lops at the back, these were secured through the backing, which was black suede, in a coved shape, with thicker card behind for strength

Re: Restoring hardened Liberon cream

Withe gilt creams in jars, I have used white spirit, 1st I used a screwdriver to break up the harden cream , then add a bit of the white spirit at a time and mix into the bits of the harden cream, you can get it down to a fine paste, I did this to 3 or 4 jars about 2 years ago, they are still usable...

Re: Restoring hardened Liberon cream

Have you tried heating it up with a heat gun / hairdryer,
There is a kit (in the USA) where there is a plug in heater, a bit like a soldering iron, where you melt the wax into the holes/scratches, I have heated uo a teaspoon with a heatgun and melted some of the creams with it, seems to work

Re: Mismatched corners

You can see if the moulding is warped, by placing each lenght of moulding on the right hand arm of the Morso and see if it rocks, if it does, then it's warped

Re: Morso EH Guilotine

If you look at the trianglur plate on the bed, it should have a number, well it is on ours
You can check the number on this website, but it only goes up to 1998 :Slap:

Re: Pricing on mounts etc

Hi Steven It's a numbers game, it's not necessarily the unit price, you buy pallet of mountcard , 500 + per pallet, at a discounted price, same with your backing board, and you buy 1000+ print bags again at discounted price, so you are already starting at a lower outlay, Mark up by whatever you feel...

That moulding shold be okay for 3mm glass of that size, don't bother with a subframe, as that will only ADD to the weight :giggle: :sweating:
