Hi. I have to mount a piece of paper art and I'm usure of how ot go about it. It's a Chinese paper cut-out. It's very intricate and delicate. Since it's round and going into a square mat opening, i'm unsure of what would be the archival thing to do here. Any tips? Thanks.

No, that was not called for at all!

Welcome to the Grumble.

My first reaction would be to encapsulate the paper art in Melanix (Mylar) and mount it behind the matboards.

Rather than hash over what had been discussed frequently on this forum, I would suggest that you use the "search" function at the top of the page and do a search for "Mylar", "encapsulation", or "Mylar encapsulation" and find the archived topics that have been addressed for using this technique.
