need ideas on how to frame masks for presentation to buyers. need to protect from the elements over a period of time but need something cost-effective as i have many. tried plexiglass (lucite) but it reflects too much and also for the bigger piecesw it is expensive.
Either respond...it has been over one hour or cancel my request and refund my money!! I can't wait here forever.
I'm sorry but this solution is not appropriate for what I am seeking. I have to present this to a higher end consumer outlet and I don't think they will accept this. I was considering using wood moldings as a frame and then mounting the masks using matting covered with fabric....no glass at this point because it is very expensive. Is there a way I could make these moldings stressed (myself) or what kind of outlet would have them at an affordable price?
It should cost no more than $10/-....max.$15.00. I saw an idea at the framer's that I liked. I could just mount the mask on a board/matting, covered with fabric (burlap), and then put a wood molding around it. The molding I saw was very beautiful, but rough-looking, kind of went with the mask. It was also stressed wood. Either I could do this myself or have someone do it for me. But I need ideas to keep it within my $ limit. Also, is Krylon the best spray to protect the mask.
The material is palm fronds and by the time I am done with the paint they harden
like wood, so I suppose beeswax would be great. I am not too happy about stuff
like Krylon either...I have to wear a mask for protection and it isn't good for the environment either especially since my work is done on a material from nature!! Defeats the purpose. So thanks for the beeswax suggestion. Please confirm this for me....if it would be adding a protective coat and then I will accept.
