View Full Version : "Scroll" one hour acrylic on paper 18"x24"

This is the first in a series of acrylics on paper. I am doing these to sell more inexpensively because I honestly need paint. I am unsure how far to bring out the figures. I think I am just about done. I don't really want to make them completely defined. I would also appreciate advice on how to mount these (or other method) for framing. I will make prints I think.

This is quite interesting visually.
Nice active mark-making,and I agree, it does look finished.

I would contact a real framing shoppe (not a big box national retailer) for advice on mounting this. You might be surprised how expensive it can be.

If you are selling through your website it might be better to leave it as is, it is easier to ship out rolled up in tube, let the buyer mount and frame it.

I have been using a local frame shop for over a year now. I talked to the manager and told him I am an artist and would be using his store to do all my framing. He then works with me on each order, usually being about 40 to 60% off normal pricing.

When I do a paper piece, it obviously needs to be framed and matted. I cannot afford to do every piece. Example-- 5x7 piece matted in a 11x14 mat. Mat costs $10, krystal bag $1 or so, and viola. Folks can then drop it into a frame of their choice. I also use an online frame shop to use photo examples. See pic....
