What is a wash/line french bound mount?
wash line mounts
This special, handmade mounting is a combination of traditional English and French techniques.
The lines and wash are drawn/painted around the mount to compliment and balance
the colours in the picture, much care and subtlety is needed to create a good
wash/line mount.

Each mount is individually made for each particular picture.
The french binding is the inset deeper mount...
usually covered with a linen finish to compliment the colour in the picture.
