I run a search here to see of there is coverage for framing and matting large artwork. While there's some, I was wondering if I could put it into frame.
The problems I foresee at this point are:
- Weight. - Obviously, frame would be heavy. I will use Plexiglas instead of the glass.
- Size of the frame - I intend to frame it in 40x78 frame (8 inch borders, bottom one 10 inches).
- Matte board - This is the biggest problem. 40x60 inches is the biggest I could find to buy in Vancouver. How do I frame it? Are there bigger matte boards than 40x60? If not, how do I make one so is aesthetically pleasing and not obtruding?
Is it doable? Or is it stupid?
