Window Mount

This is a piece of white or coloured board with a hole cut in the middle, normally with a bevelled edge. The mount holds the artwork away from the glass, reducing risks to the artwork due to condensation. The choice of colour can reflect the predominant shades in the artwork or can contrast with them.

Float Mounting

The artwork is placed on top of the board and the board shows around the edge of the artwork.

Flush Mounting

The artwork is placed on top of the board and no board is visible.
Conservation Mounting
Pollutants in the air can affect valuable pieces of art and are of concern to conservation picture framers. London air and chemicals in mounting and backing boards can cause discolouration. By using non acidic materials artwork damage will be dramatically reduced.
