HOW TO WRAP AND BACK AN ARTWORK:
You will need:
• Backing board
• Clear Tape
• Stanley Knife
Step one: Using the pencil mark on the backing board the size of the artwork, leaving a few millimetres extra around the piece
Step two: Use the knife to cut the board to size following the guidelines
Step three: Cut the cellophane leaving enough to comfortably cover the front and back
Step four: Tightly fold the cellophane in half securing it with clear tape
Step five: A handy tip when folding cellophane is to score the edges you will be folding with your nail or any other hard edge
Step six: Secure the ends with clear tape
Step seven: Repeat to the other end
Step eight: Ta da, you have now wrapped and backed your artwork
If you do not have access to these materials you can come and wrap your print at the W OR M for £5.00
