Matting Supplies and How to

If you are still in a bit of a fog about matting your prints, then you need to meet me at Texas Art Supply.

We will get your supplies for matting your prints:

1.  Mat board (either blank or precut)

2.  Backing board

3.  Hinging tape

4.  Photo corners or mounting strips

5.  Artist tape

6.  Archival pen

7.  Cutting blade

We will also look at options for

1.  mat cutters

2.  self healing mats

3.  squares

4.  cases, boxes, and portfolios to hold your stuff

Bring up to 2 of your images that you want to mat. I will demonstrate matting a few of them with the display mat cutters, and you need them to make sure you get the right color mat board.

There is also a description of the steps for in matting your work with precut mats on our website under resources: Matting Your Photos

Please note – this meeting is for paid members of HPS, and limited to the first 10 people.  

If there is a long waiting list, I will consider a second session.

    This will be a great how to get together. One of my teachers told me: "Only the matted print is the finished work". Laszlo
