During an extended coffee break at one of our weekly meetings John Harris, a Lacock Art Group member, showed us how to cut a mount to display our paintings.
After cutting the mount board to the desired external size John drew the required cut-out shape on the reverse side - see image 1.
Then, using his special guided cutter with angled blade, he cut along the lines - see image 2. A professional finish was achieved, with the 45 degree angle of the blade producing a neat, bevelled inside edge. A number of different models of this type of mount cutter are available, some of them already in use by our members.
There was much interest in this from members, who took the opportunity to gain some practical, hands-on experience.
