Craftsmanship is very important!! Mount your work appropriately!
• exacto knife with extra blades
• studiotac dry adhesive or spray mount
• cutting mat
• black board
• fine sand paper block.
• Make sure you have a clean work area
When attaching the paper, make sure to use a roller or something
similar to flatten your paper into the board so that there are no air
• When measuring, make sure your pencil marks are light and accurate.
cutting, use a repetitive motion with several light cuts instead of
trying to go through the thickness of the board at once.
• After the project is mounted, make sure to use the sand board to smooth the edges if necessary
• Make sure that there are no visible glue or pencil marks.
• Make sure that you leave a nice margin all the way around, don’t crowd your board.
• Make sure that the backs of your boards are clean and with you identification label.
• Make sure that the boards are consistent throughout.
As a quick reference, take a look at this GSU
student's video. She covers the steps to mount your boards for
presentation. I will go into a little more detail in class, but you can
always refer back to this video if you have too!
