Add a creative touch to your framing project.
What is a specialty mat cut? Most mat openings are cut in a typical rectangle shape. Specialty mat cuts are unusual shapes or designs cut into the mat instead of the usual right angles. A carefully chosen specialty mat cut can creatively enhance the art. There are so many shapes from which to choose, how do you know which one is the right one? As with most framing designs, there is no one right answer.
We took the same art and added different mat cuts. Which one do you like best?
It just depends on what you are trying to emphasize.
As you can see, a lot of specialty mat cuts require two mats, but you can play with the other color for different effects. Use two layers of the same color for a subtle look. Or, make one layer much brighter than the other to highlight something in the art. There is no limit to how many mats can be used!
