THE LOST ART OF MOUNT DECORATION
Once a staple of the framing workshop, mount decoration has become a bit of a lost art in recent years. However, an embossed or drawn line is a great way to add subtle polish to a framing project. We’ve got all the tools you need to try out these simple techniques...
 
 
 
 
What's it for? Drawing debossed lines.

When drawn against a straight edge, this tool leaves a smooth, debossed line on the surface of the mountboard.  It takes just a moment, yet adds  a stylish touch.
  • Stainless steel tip
  • Comfortable wooden handle
 
 
 
What are they for? Smoothing corners & decorative lines.
The curved tool smoothes down the cut edges of a mount and tidies up corners. The straight tool is used to draw decorative debossed lines, in place of v-grooves.
  • Carefully shaped from stainless steel
  • Highly polished
  • Comfortable wooden handles
  5771  Curved Burnisher   £3.14
  5772  Straight Burnisher   £3.14
 
 
 
 
What's it for? Marking out measuring line positions.
This neat tool has a row of numbered holes going out at 45° from the corner of your mountboard.  Using a sharp pencil or a pin, you can mark out your chosen positions for wash and line decoration, or even decorative tapes.
  • Easy to use
  • Durable
 
 
What's it for? Drawing lines with inks & watercolours.
This nib of this precision-made pen is hand polished and hard plated for durability. Learn more about using ruling pens in ‘Lines and Ruling Pens’ by Russ Wood.
  • Calibrated scale on adjuster screw knob
  • Available with a fixed or swivel blade
