Mount finished piece before framing
While painting this piece for a canyon series I am working on, it became more of an exploration work. I did not like the results in 2 areas so I did some splicing, cutting out the overworked areas and splicing in the same but unpainted fresh paper to rework those areas. The paper is Arches, 140 lb, 22.5” x 30” wc paper and I used acid free tape on back of piece to secure. The spliced areas are the rock formations in the lower right (rust/orange) and in the right mid section (grays/mauve).
As I expected, the tape is not holding the spliced in paper areas as flat as I would like and since it was an exploration piece I wasn’t bothered by this but I rather like the piece so I am looking for any suggestions on how to secure the painting to an acid free illustration board backing before framing?
Much appreciated, thanks all,
