Hinge Artwork Into a Mount
The term for fixing artwork into a mount using minimal adhesive is ‘hinging’. The artwork is hinged at the top only, which prevents ‘cockling’ by allowing the paper to expand with variations in moisture levels. Using a water-activated gummed tape makes the process reversible, but self adhesive tapes are sometimes preferred where that’s not an issue. Our video takes you through the steps.
