A large Egyptian papyrus. Matted with a copper - coloured mat. With acrylic lite and a batten backing so the papyrus can be flattened as much as possible. This was wider than 60", so the matboard had to be in two sections. Although still noticeable if you really look for it, the seam is very discreet. This is only because our computerized mat cutter is so precise.
Large pieces always present new challenges that only come to the surface as we're doing the actual framing. In this case, the challenge was keeping the papyrus as flat as possible.
Starting in 2008 as a full-time photographer, I own and operate Riveros Photography, here in Toronto. We have transitioned into a photo printing, art duplication, and full-service framing shop. We use only high-quality mouldings, and materials, and are proud of the fact that we do all work on-site.
