Product Description

Framing and matting are important to protect artwork from dust, careless handling, acids, pollutants, and moisture. Equally important, though, proper framing and matting can enhance and reveal the beauty of your artwork. While framing is important, it can also be expensive if you re taking your work to a professional framer. But you don t have to pay a lot for professional results. In fact, you can save up to half or more if you frame your work yourself. In this program you'll learn how to: Select the right mat and frame Cut a single and double-mat Mount your artwork Make your own frame molding Cut and assemble your frame Paint and decorate your frame Hang and display your artwork Use conservation framing techniques


Larry Withers, writer and host of Framing, Matting & Hanging: A Beginner s Guide, is well aware that matting and framing artwork and photos are not easy tasks, but he has risen to the challenge with this comprehensive program featuring easy to- digest steps and clear instructions on techniques, tools, and processes even down to details such as how to dispose of used cutting blades. Where mistakes are likely to happen, such as overcutting the corner of a mat, Withers provides tips on how to fix them. In addition to showing how to cut single, double, and oval mats, safely handle glass, and make frames from scratch using hardware-store molding, Withers also offers suggestions on choosing colors and materials, and gives advice on hanging pieces individually or in groups. DVD extras include a gallery of framing ideas, lists of materials and tools, and PDF files with planning worksheets that Withers explains in detail how to use. An inexpensive and thorough introduction to the subject, this is highly recommended. (3 1/2 out of 4 stars) --Video Librarian

Framing, Matting & Hanging is a complete look at the subjects essential to the presentation of artwork. Larry Withers, is the host of this comprehensive explanation of the process of taking finished artwork from a studio to its final location on a wall. The information is presented very clearly and honestly with items of opinion stated as such. Mr. Wither s not only presents the how-to of the various procedures mentioned in the film's title, but also the information needed to select the materials and toos for each job. The information is so detailed that, with a mild investment in supplies, most people can learn these procedures from the video and soon end up saving themselves a substantial amount of money, as framing is generally expensive to shop out to framing stores. Information included ranges from making one's own molding to acknowledging the opportunities to buy ready-made frames online. Given the proper materials, the information presented here is certainly within the abilities of high-school students, and some of the decisions, such as choosing mat colors, would even be of interest to young students just using backing board. At over an hour and 20 minutes in length, and including project worksheets, and materials and tools sheets in PDF files, this DVD is a value. --Arts & Activities

I was hugely impressed by this video. I have done enough framing & matting to know that, while it is not rocket science, it is also not something you can just jump into without a plan. This video provides simple, easy to follow instructions, and explains all the materials and tools needed to do a truly professional job. Almost more important than that, however, are the lifetime's accumulation of rules of thumb, tips, tricks of the trade, and general commonsense, that is all too lacking in many other "How To" books and videos. Surprisingly sophisticated techniques such as oval mats and French mats are also covered, making this much more than just a beginner's guide.
