Dry mount Wallis pastel paper?

This is my first posting so I hope I'm doing it correctly!

I would like information about mounting Wallis pastel paper 18"x24" and larger to a firm surface for support and easy in framing. Is this possible to do myself or does it need to be done professionally? If I can do it, what glue is necessary?

Thanks!

Did you post this in the pastel forum also? Kitty Wallis is one of the "partners" at Wet Canvas, but she may not read this particular forum.

Hi cap-a-pie, welcome to the forum, and yes you are doing it correctly.

If the pastel is fixed you can do almost what you like with it, and it can be treated like any other art on paper. Framers normally hinge mount original art on paper.

If it is unfixed, it is one of the hardest things to mount and frame properly without making an utter mess of it.

This may not be what you are looking for, but this a link to an article on mounting Wallis paper. There are several other discussions on this subject in the Pastel Talk forum. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Articles2/51770/658/

Hope this helps,

John

Re: Dry mount Wallis pastel paper?

I would opt for hinging the artwork rather than dry mounting it. Hinging with rice paper tape is archival, reversable and will not harm the artwork. Also, remember to mount it to an acid-free surface and cover with uv protection glass. Even acid-free paper will be damaged if put against an acidic backing or exposed to uv radiation.

Re: Dry mount Wallis pastel paper?

Would you recommend the rice paper hinge for a pastel painting on Wallis Paper as large as 24x20"? Do you know of anyone who has used clear acid-free corners to hold the art?

Hi mgillespie and welcome to WC and this forum.

You should have no problem using hinges, just space them out along the top edge, I would probably use 4

Some one else may give you an answer to the plastic corners question.
