Re: Super Jumbo Mountboard

"Who can cut apertures in something this big?!" The guide rail of my mountcutter lifts off. As Steve said you need a "large bench" :yes: I place the guide rail on the pencil line, cut 2/3 ft, keep the blade in the cut, slide the guide rail through the handle holding the blade and continue the cut. I...

Re: Anyone still use one of these ??

That's a blast from the past. :shock:

I used one those all the time in the past. If I recall correctly, they were prone to problems, with triangles often spraying far and wide.

IMOH I think the guns most used today a far superior and much nicer colours :D

Re: Morso F advice

Hello Richard :D and welcome to the FF

I agree with Prospero on both counts.

If you require the name/location of a reliable company to sharpen your blades please get in touch. I am not to far from you if you are passing, pop in.

One of the best presents I received was from one of my daughters partner. He has included me in his Netflix package. He has shown me how to bring up and view films on my TV :D So far, I have watched "The Irishman" twice :D What a film. The only problem is, I can't remember how to exit Netflix :? So ...

Re: newbie advise needed - canvas framing

Good point Justin. If it were me I would supply two picture hooks for hanging and suggest they are spaced apart and perhaps small bumpers for the two bottom corners of the stretcher. Very small points that do not distract in anyway from a very nice framing job :clap: Have a great Christmas. Peter.

Re: Earthborn clay paint

There could be an opportunity there. Are match pots available? and if so.... I'm thinking, make up a couple of frames for the Interior design shop using their paint to display along with the paint showing customers what can be achieved with that paint range. It may work out and benefit you both. Pet...

Re: Quadruple mount?

Peter, your right to doubt my chances of getting the mounts right but that is what my customer wants. Concocting a frame would be a doddle but my customer has firm ideas.

At the moment I'm leaning towards letting Wessex Fine Art cut the mounts :?

Re: Mounting Wedding Rings

I have just held a very old tin in place in a frame by in-bedding small, round magnets in the mount board. Mount board peels away in layers from the back using a sharp utility knife.

Welcome to the FF btw :D

Some will maintain that brown paper will mark sensitive moulding but I have never had a problem. As for corner protectors, I associate them wi...
