Framing CP behind glass or styrene

Is it necessary to frame colored pencil drawings behind a protective surface like glass or styrene? If so, which do you prefer?

Personally I think it is for protection of the work. I prefer glass.

Does the glass have a glare and isn't it heavy?

Re: Framing CP behind glass or styrene

Non glare glass is available, and picture glass being 1/8 inch thick, its really not too heavy. Its a good idea to keep the glass spaced away from the artwork though, either by using a mat, or a small spacer moulding around the edge of the glass. Thin strips of mat board can do the trick.

Glass. You can also get TrueVue (just one name for it) glass that basically has zero reflection, but you certainly pay for it. Always professionally frame with spacers between the glass and surface of the drawing. It should never actually touch the glass.
