How engravings and paintings are framed.

Framed and matted engraving
  • Usually glass is not used when framing a painting, and sometimes a linen liner is added.
  • The surface of the engraving doesn't touch the glass, since the mat is about 1/16 of an inch thick.
  • Mats and Frames come in many colors, styles and sizes. An acid-free mat is preferred so it won't damage the engraving.
  • Here is a picture of some of the frames available at R. Michelson Galleries.

Framing the Engraving

The Mat and Engraving are inserted into a Frame with glass or Plexiglas (the clear glass can't be seen in this picture) to cover and protect the engraving.
