Scroll matting

A widely used technique in the framing industry is scroll matting. This is where the matting is thin on the sides and heavy at the top and a little extra heavier at the bottom. This technique elongates the artwork and gives it a sophisticated flair and visual elegance. Two examples above highlight this technique: a Fred Lyon black and white photo and a Wayne Thiebaud monoprint.
