Framing pastel paintings.

Framing a pastel painting can be tricky. It needs to be protected under glass unlike oils and acrylics. There is a lot more useful information on the net regarding framing and use of spacers which are placed between the Mat board and the pastel painting so that any loose particle of dust falls below instead of ruining the glass or the mat board.

I have not used spacers earlier but shall using it soon as it has lots of advantages. The image below shows the use of spacers between the glass and the pastel painting.
