FLOAT MOUNTING ART ON HEAVY PAPER
Technique for framing art with a deckle edge
 
 
 
Framers often get presented with art on deckle edged paper, which the customer would like framed to show the deckle. This can be tricky if you want to minimise cockling while framing to FATG Conservation standards.

Roy Rowlands of Hedgehog Framing is a well-known and widely respected framer, the first to achieve FATG's 'Guild Certified Framer' qualification, making him 'GCF 001'. He developed what he calls the 'Hedgehog Method' for float mounting, which ticks all the boxes and he's used it very successfully for many years. Working with Lion, he has now made a video to demo the method, which is available on our YouTube here.
 
 
 
Roy uses simple materials with no special tools or skills required but he does suggest that you do a practice piece before mounting your customer's art. To support the video we have a comprehensive information sheet 'PUB047'.
