I found these pre-packed mounts in Cass Art and thought I would try doing some smaller pastels to fit them. I’ve made a start with a little Westie and a German Shepherd just to see how they do on my wall at the Garrion Bridges Antiques and Art centre.
As well as improving the presentation of the paintings, it allows the buyer to use or select their own frame which they can buy ‘off the peg’ as the mounts are standard sizes. The clear sleeves protect the pastels and allows a price to be attached to the painting without any damage to the paper or the mount.
Let’s see how they do.
