I have 4 10x20 acrylics on canvas that have a lot of texture. Customer wants a Neilson #15 profile frame. Any thoughts on how to stretch or mount these? Stretcher bars won't fit inside this profile.

Thanks!

They don't all flatten out in dry mounting, but I wouldn't experiment on a customer's piece.

You could probably find a wood stock at Home Depot or the lumberyard that would work nicely as a shallow stretcher. It would not be hard to improvise a raised edge.

You could use a sheet of 3/8" ply to stretch on, and cut a small rag mat to raise the canvas off of the board.
