  • Hi all, newbie here. I searched through this site to see if there were discussions about framing, but didn't find much. If it's here, please point me in that direction!

    Hoping to finish a bunch of 18 x 24” watercolors (on paper) in the next two months. What’s the best way to frame/finish them for art shows? Is acrylic recommended or does that give off too much glare? I like the look of watercolor mounted to cradled wood panel, but wondering if all the labor/time and hidden expenses make it just as expensive as framing? 

    Thanks for any insight!
