If not, you can use thick chipboard or scraps of linoleum, but be careful that you can’t cut through to your work surface. If a tip breaks off, it’s going to drag on the mat and won’t give you a clean cut.

Materials: A Note about Cutting Blades: When cutting mats it is imperative that you have a fresh blade. (Discard old blades by wrapping them in tape to avoid personal injury.) If you don’t own a mat cutter, you can cut your mat window with an x-acto knife, but you won’t achieve a good clean bevel.

It’s not hard, but having the right tools will really help you cut a straight, clean and beveled mat.

The paper has a watercolor paper texture and produces beautiful images. Before cutting the mats, I painted the frames with Annie Sloan Paris Grey and finished them off with Miss Mustard Seed’s Linen. Hopefully you have a self-healing cutting mat to cut on top of.

Work on it recently started and will continue outside school hours.
