  • mounting for my wall

    Ok so my better half wants me to put my skills to use for creating some creative images of the brats for our living room wall. Im creating the photos with some very different sizes, some long, some tall.

    Now, iv never mounted anything to hang like that. So im looking for some pointers. Has anyone done this?

    Do you know of a diy site that will show some tips?

        if you use an acrylic base paint I your okay if you get some vinyl decals made. proper mounting would require premask, you also use soapy water in a spray bottle to be able to squeegee all the air bubbles out.

        If decals aren't an option, have you though about using gel medium, the stuff acrylic painters use, we use to use it to mount with on some projects, but you can also do some need xerox copying projects with it. Also if you get a matte finish verstion you can go over the pics with no problems. any effort to remove them will require scraping and repainting later though.

            Dro are you telling him to stick printed vinyl stickers of his 'brats' on the wall?

            If these are photo prints, most art stores sell framing kits (the common term is Nielsen frames but others make them). You just by the height rails and the width rails and screw them together, snap in the hanging hardware, put a nail in the wall and voila. How hard is that?
            Well, you might have to ask them to cut you a piece of non-glare acrylic to fit your dimensions...Forgot that part.

                The forum is busiest from Monday to Friday. It's quite slow on the weekends.

                Like you mentioned with the other forums, this forum has slowed down considerably over the past two or three years....

                I think she looks pretty good. My only critique would be that her hips are rather narrow that they don't seem to be in proportion to her body. I would bump them out just some more....

                Good evening, everyone.

                As a new member to this excellent forum, I have no idea whether the current level of activity is to be expected, but it seems very quiet at just a few posts per day....

                Two spaces was never a thing. Ever. It was invented by high school typewriting teachers who thought that the monospaced letters on a typewriter made it difficult to see where the end of a sentence occurred....

                It's an interesting request. I think the answer depends on what your designing. Who's going to use it, why, and what solution makes the most sense from the end user's view.
