Re: Characters from 14 years ago NEC Spring Fair

Two people come immediately to mind who had a massive influence on my framing career. Brian Wolf and John Raines, John was the reason I bought a Fletcher mount cutter and started doing offset corners, Mr Wolf opened my eyes to what could be done with framing and started me on the path of creative f...

Re: lining the inside of deep box frames

The reason I started to use PVA and a few bits of carpet / tapestry tape , was when I used tapestry tape to cover the back of the mountcard before cutting it strips to use as card spacers, I found the adhesive would give way on some box framess and the top spacer would bow down, had the same frame c...

Re: Colouring the bevelled edge

The way i tend to do it is, with the blank mount face up, measure in from the outer edge the width of the mount border + 5mm, make a pencil mark, when you have done all four sides, using 811 tape, tape along these lines, with most of the tape on the out side of the pencil lines you have just marked....
