Re: [teacherartexchange] Matting 3-D Work

Why do you want to frame it with a mat? Shadow box frames are deep
enough and can be bought in a few standard sizes or in custom sizes.
Mats are used to lift the glass off the artwork, not as frames in
themselves. Using a shadow box would keep the glass off the object
without the mat.
