Acrylic face mounts is a new and growing trend in the art community. Already very popular in museums and galleries, it’s now emerging into home decor. Widely favored by photographers and art lovers, acrylic or plexiglass, bring every detail of a work to life and takes photography to a new level.
Face mounting, the process of creating acrylic photo prints, is a difficult task that requires great concentration and attention to detail. The slightest appearance of a bubble in the finished work can render the entire piece useless. Face mounting requires you to press an optically clear adhesive between a photo print and the acrylic, forming an airtight bond.
The process of face mounting adds a third dimension to the photo and creates the favored “pop-out” or "stand off the wall" effect.
A finished work hangs a half inch perfectly off the wall in an office or home. Moreover, the glass layer allows the absorption of light, creating a rich and sharp image, where every detail of the work comes to life.
Acrylic photo mounts are now preferred over the standard canvas prints because they provide color intensity and photo sharpness that traditional canvas prints simply cannot match.
