Mat Decoration - Washlines

Creating Washlines Digitally
Like many things, what were once hand created, is now created digitally. Adding washlines to your mount is a traditional technique almost forgotten about by framers. This method suits many varieties of work, however it was commonly used for watercolours and became known as "English Washlines" during the 18th Century when watercolour painting flourished.

Papakura Picture Framers can now create this effect digitally and completely archival. Talk to the team to find out more.
