New Respect for Framers
Having now spent 4 days in my garage, cutting mats, cutting backing boards, mounting prints and popping them into their frames, I have a much healthier respect for framers! They do a marvellous job, as it’s not easy. There is lots of measuring things 3 times before you cut, and as you cut, you cross your fingers that your cut is straight and deep. I did fluff one mat - I have yet to recut that one! But with patience, and learning (I now have brand new, super sharp blades), I now have 6 framed prints and 3 matted ones, completely bubble wrapped and waiting for The Dunedin Art Show next month. Along with the 10 already adorning our walls, not a bad effort so far. Still a few to go. Nice that all the days I’ve been in the garage the weather has been a bit awful so I don’t feel as if I’m losing time with my flowers, which are begging to be photographed.
