I have this kids piece that is lots and lots and lots of paint on regular posterboard. The paint caused the board to "warp" alot. Its pretty big and I think that it will stick out past a single mat and touch the glass. Ideas? I would like to drymount this thing!

Just a grumble too. This thing is one of those modern art things that just has paint splashed all over the thing. I am suppose to match it to something she already has hanging. So I'm now putting this in a natural wood frame. I get soooo frustrated when people already have the frame designed before they bring it in. This frame belongs on this like a button on a barn door.

Actually that would be a good idea as I didn't really want to mat it anyway.

Be careful, some of those poster paints are very brittle and may crack when drymounted. You should consider perfect mount instead.

At least she brought it in.

You could add a spacer in the frame package. I have worked on some kid's 3-d art and this works very well...
