My Certified Professional Picture Framer (CPF) certificate
Design: I took the PPFA logo and created a layered mat
using the chevron design from the logo
Top mat: Cherokee faux suede mat worked over the dimensional mat.
Bottom mat: The same faux suede as the top mat
Mat decoration: The sculpted mat was created with a second mat. I took the mat drop-outs, which would normally be discarded and adhered them to the main mat. the mat was then wrapped with the suede and worked into the raised detail. A Silver fillet was added between the two suede mats.
Frame: Arquati, silver with a blue/black curved panel
Glass: Tru-Vue Conservation clear
Mount: mounted with rice glue and mulberry paper hinges on rag board and backed with foam core.
