Ok, next question is, how do you mat and frame these to their best
advantage? My students have done some trememndous work on black paper
in the past, but somehow, some of the brilliance gets lost behind the
glass. If memory serves, they were matted in dark mats and simple metal
In our spring art show, parents are asked to have their child's work
matted and framed. It would be great to have some suggestions for these
difficult to mat & frame pieces.

Where do you buy Molly Hawkins paper? Is it really pricey? If you are
just looking for the blackest construction paper, Tru Ray is it.
Nothing duller than a faded black construction paper, is there? I think
I would like to try some Molly Hawkins for my mandalas next year, and
for the Mixed Breed Animals. Other than that, for a general purpose
high quality black paper, Tru Ray is nice.
