A quick run through of how to cut a simple picture mount to fit your artwork.
For this project you will need:
Mountboard (I just used ‘White’ from papergourmet.co.uk)
Craft knife and mat cutter or bevel cutter.
Or Mount cutter (mine is a Logan 450-1 which I got from Lion picture framing supplies)
Ruler (metal ruler if you don’t have a mount cutter)
Pencil and rubber
This project should take between 20-40 minutes.
Feel free to ask questions. This was just a quick overview for anyone not sure where to start.
Off camera I took my inside aperture measurement away from my outside measurement.
Then I divided this by 2 to give me the size of the boarder, so I could centre my aperture.
21.1 - 11.8 = 9.3 divide 2 = 4.65 cm
29.9 - 24.5 = 5.4 divide 2 = 2.7 cm
