Re: hanging type for narrow profiles

Thanks Steve, Peter, I hadn't thought of this route. I will look into riveting onto the backboard and the side clips. Thanks for your input/time.

hanging type for narrow profiles

Hi all, I was curious to know what folks use as hanging methods when dealing with narrow profiles such as Lions - L2119, or narrower? I have amassed a collation of various hanging types but keen to know what peoples 'go to's' are? Thanks as always... Here are a few I have been trying - Lion - 5718 L...

Re: float mounting

Thank you for the detailed replies and great insight! I don't have the ability to dry mount (yet) and use a 3rd party. Was keen to get a view on the pitfalls / limitations of float mounting without the use of dry mounting. Thanks all!

Deep rebate L / Canvas profile

Hi,

Anyone aware of a supplier who offers a deep rebate L profile - ideally 55mm?

Alternatively, any handy tips on how to create this profile from other profiles?

Cheers!

Re: float mounting

Keen to get a view on the methods used to float larger items. As said by Mark, I also seem to be floating 85% of the work I do and have used the 'hedgehog' method happily, using Japanese tissue paper and wheat starch. So far, I haven't had any issue with this method or indeed the wheat starch coming...

Re: Framing spectacles

Thanks Steve, I failed to add that I had first thought of this but the depth of the folded arms is about 35mm and would require a fairly deep box frame (60mm +), the client wasn't too keen to have such a deep frame. I also thought that the holes created could / would (from my initial test) look a bi...

Re: Framing spectacles

Thank you both.

I should have mentioned Mark, the nose rests form part of the glasses frame, they don't have a separate nose rest - I know what you mean ... i'm a glasses wearer.

Framing spectacles

Hi all, I have a lovely client who has asked me to frame his late fathers spectacles, they are a modern (plastic rectangle) frame . However they want the arms hidden. I just wanted to see if folks have mounted glasses in a similar way and could offer some advice? My thought is to remove the arms of ...

Re: Vellum from a Psalter

Thank you Mark, once again! I am using Crescent solid core Museum board to mount it on and after I wrote my post I had a thought about the back of the Vellum which is printed on. Should I be aware of potential issues with this side getting damaged as the vellum moves around, is there anything I coul...

Vellum from a Psalter

Hi all Bit of a head scratcher this one… I have been asked to frame a piece of vellum from a Psalter. It is 270mm x 185mm. It is printed on both sides, but the client seems comfortable to only display the more decorative side. I have read all the previous posts on Vellum and Mark (NYAF) has offered ...

Thanks again for the insight, you can over think things sometimes ... :)

That guitar sounds like it was a fun job and quite incredible that you didn't use any wires or holders, nice work. Do you have any pictures you are happy to share?

Re: HD Bonding tape question

Thanks Prospero. Because on the height / detail of the face of the magnet I won't be able to put much pressure on to help with adhesion, which was my concern about using tape but from a quick play with this stuff it feels quite high tack so should be ok...?

Re: Pricing software

Thanks for that Justin, that is a very good point to consider and frankly I am happy to raise with Mark and get his input.
