This is the process I go through to back a painting on board ready to hang on a wall.
- Mitre Box
- Pine strip of wood
- Sand paper
- Wood glue
- Modeling compound (artist quality)
- plastic/cardboard/business card
- Gesso primer (artist quality) Ruler
- Hand drill
- 2 x D-rings
- 2 x Screws
- Screw driver
- Needle-nose pliers
- Wire cutter
- Fine Point Pen (artist quality)
*Note: Step 9 - Fill corners with modeling compound.
This particular example shows how I backed 'My Venus' ready to hang for a customer who purchased this painting off Facebook. I back all my artwork on board using this same process if the buyer chooses to have the image mounted with wire and D-rings ready for hanging.
