The traditional and most common support material to which the paint is applied for a watercolor is paper. As the water paints are applied the paper tends to draw up causing gentle waves. These waves have a tendency to be accentuated when glass is put directly against the art - for this reason and for protection against moisture from the glass we recommend using a mat when framing a watercolor. The mat will help hold the watercolor in place and offer protection from the glass.
- Mounting - we recommend t-hing mounts if you don’t want to the paper edges or float mounts if you do.
- Glazing - to make sure your watercolor is protected and you can see all of the detail and suditely of the various colors we recommend museum glass.
