Matting Tips - Part 3 - Bottom Weighting


Here is a simple trick that can help take a simple matting project up one notch.  By adding some additional width to the border of the mat at the bottom of the image – it will add “weight” to the presentation.  This substance added to the bottom can also help give the entire look a professional touch.

The illustration here has added just another 1/2”.
