HOW TO WRAP AND BACK AN ARTWORK:

You will need:

• Backing board
• Cellophane
• Clear Tape
• Scissors
• Stanley Knife
• Pencil

Step one: Using the pencil mark on the backing board the size of the artwork, leaving a few millimetres extra around the piece

Step two: Use the knife to cut the board to size following the guidelines

Step three: Cut the cellophane leaving enough to comfortably cover the front and back

Step four: Tightly fold the cellophane in half securing it with clear tape

Step five: A handy tip when folding cellophane is to score the edges you will be folding with your nail or any other hard edge

Step six: Secure the ends with clear tape

Step seven: Repeat to the other end

Step eight: Ta da, you have now wrapped and backed your artwork

If you do not have access to these materials you can come and wrap your print at the W OR M for £5.00
