So another thing done. My gigantic frame has been ordered. Not happy about spending this amount of money (since don’t really have it) but it is done. It will be a nice 8-ply mat and I still have to add a spacer to it to keep the work separated from the acrylic. After the frame arrives and I see how much space in the frame I have – I’ll see about getting the special museum backing board to offer more rigidity to the whole package.
