Hope I can explain this right. I find matching mini frames to the paintings very difficult. For example, I cut a support 2' X 3", then when I go to fit it into the frame, even though they say they are for 2 X 3 some a too large in the window opening, and some are too small.
I should also mention that when I cut the support a tiny bit bigger, then my painting ends up being bigger . . . perhaps I don't know when to quit. LOL.
Right now, I am getting ready for a show, and did buy some of those gold frames from Micheals, and some others too, metal and also wood. The paintings are too small by about 1/16 of an inch. Could I make a very narrow matte, barely visible just to secure the work in the frame, you know, how when something is double-matted, about the width of the inner matte.
Doesn't seem to be any way around this matte cutting business.
I am cursed!
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
