The whole piece is very gently lifted at the top corners. The next step is where everything can go oh so wrong. With one hand also holding the dry mounting brush, walk over to the backing board and stick the painting to the board using the brush on the edges only. At the same time, you have to re-lift the painting if any creases appear. Before I completely seal all the edges, I insert a straw into one gap left and blow air between the painting & the board – to prevent it from sticking to the board.

  1. Wow!!!! Cant afford to have shaky fingers!! Well done doing your own mounting.
    Cant wait to see all your finished pieces at exhibition.
    Very proud of you ConCon!! Hugs.

    1. Thank you, Jenny! It didn’t help when my hand holding the wet art kept bumping into things in my cluttered lounge when I was walking it over to the backing board. Heart palpitations! I need a bigger space to do the mounting.
