How to Frame a Picture/Material required

When selecting a frame, decide on the colour, window size and area of the mount. (A pale colour makes the picture look larger; a dark colour makes the picture look smaller). Normally, a frame is sold in a long strip which needs to be cut to size.

You will also need:

  • Glass
  • Matt board
  • Foam core
  • Sealing tape
  • Wood glue
  • Pins for securing the backing to the frame
  • Eyelets
  • Nylon cord
