How to attach a black and white photo to a piece of foam core for framing; learn tips, tricks and more in in this free photography video series on framing taught by expert Minnie Bell.
I mounted this picture to a piece of foam core. It's just a piece of slick paper that is in case with foam core (in foam) they call it a foam core because of the foam that is on the edge. I actually adhere this one to this piece so that when I set my matte over the top of it I can cut it out and have a nice piece. I can cut it out using my trusty knife (cutting) and if you don't have a sharp knife, that is what happens. But you continue to cut it out. We're going to leave that alone for right now and go the one that I already have cut. I chose not to mount this one because if you are doing it at home this would be something you couldn't do without going paying somebody to do it. One of the other reasons I chose to do this is because this is a original picture. They really didn't want to mount it or lose much of it. We talked about several different options they chose to go this direction, they chose to go this direction because they already had a pre-existing 8 X 10 frame that I'm going to use to put here in. I cut the matte ,I chose the white because it brings out the white in the ducks chest and it adds a little bit of light to her face.
