When framing either of these art forms, it is customary to use mats and place the art behind glazing, either glass or acrylic. The scale of the frame should be relative to the size and line
qualities in the art.
Tip: Etchings and sketches are made up of fine, delicate lines that can easily be overpowered by frame designs using strong colors or patterns. Use neutral mats and frames with more delicate patterns or texures. Be sure to use conservation materials to protect these pieces of original art.
