So on the demonstrations we done so far, we either had an Easel back frame which needed…no hanging and hardware, or I have shown you how to use wired hardware on both metal…frame and the wood frame.…What I'd like to show you now are a couple of alternative methods for hanging the work.…These generally are good for high-traffic areas where the work might be bumped or extremely…heavy pieces, and in the case of the security hardware, they can help with theft deterrent as well.…For a double D ring mounting method which is used a lot in museums because it's so…stable, first thing I'll do is take these D rings, you can see they're similar to the…ones we used in our previous movie, but they have two holes rather than one.…
This makes a little bit stronger, and you can get these in heavier duty depending on…the scale of the work you're hanging.…I'm going to measure down from the top of the piece exactly 3 inches, and I'm going…to make a crosswise pencil mark, and I'm going to do it on the other side as well.…
The course begins with an overview of framing concepts, terms, and tools and then shows how to choose and work with the various components of a framed print: matboard, frame, glazing, wire hangers, and more. The course also examines the issues and creative options behind hanging an exhibit, whether in a gallery or in a home.
