How engravings and paintings are framed.
- The copper plate on the left was used
to print the engraving. The engraving is on the right, after printing and before matting.
- The picture of the plate is larger than the image on the
paper to show more of the detail.
- The paper is cut with enough room to leave a good margin to work with.
- Notice the engraving image is a mirror image of
the plate, flipped horizontally.
