I'm facing the prospect of framing several dozen oil paintings for an upcoming show. Most of the paintings are on Masonite/hardboard, but some are on stretched canvas. A couple are on unstretched canvas. I have a whole bunch of wood frames and hanging hardware ready to go. (I don't plan to use backing boards. Not sure about paper backing yet.) But I'm not sure how to secure all the paintings to the frames. Some questions:
1. Are glazier points the best thing for securing hardboard to wood frames?
2. Should I instead consider a point driver, like this? https://www.amazon.com/Logan-F500-2-.../dp/B003BMFOJQ
3. How does one secure stretched canvas to a wood frame? In many cases, the stretched canvas is deeper than the rabbet depth of my frame. The frames didn't come with any tools to secure canvas to frame.
4. I'm not sure what to do about my one or two paintings on unstretched canvas. I don't think I have enough spare canvas for stretcher bars. A fellow artist suggested simply gluing them to a piece of hardboard and then mounting that in a frame. What sort of glue would I use?
Many thanks in advance!
