I was given a photo of Gallum by a customer and asked to come up with something different for matting. Hope I spelled it right...anyway, he is the little guy in Lord of the Rings with the big head and little body. I spent half of a day coming up with a "different" mat. I cut a walking tree in it and added a sword and a weird cut out for the photo. Anyone else asked to design a LOTRings mat? Any suggestions? I took a digital photo but don't know how to post it to show you. Jean in Maine
Jean I don't know if it's what you had in mind but what about a circle opening of which the bottom mat is some shade of metalic gold (maybe black core) and then you could take a photo copy of the LOT ring 's inscription and carve it in the gold matwith an Exacto knife exposeing the Black core. This would then give Gallum an eternal home with in "His precious" RING.
