Mounting techniques


We often use two types of float mounting,

3d Float On Mount & Float On Mount.

Float mounting is a technique used to make artwork appear as if it is “floating” on top of a mount board.

While other mounting techniques involve placing the artwork directly on top of the mount,

then with 5mm/10mm foam board ( pending on frame ) the artwork is raised off the mount board to create a

3d float mount.

This is a stunning gallery effect.
