Mounted Prints On Wood Panel
Here is an insight into my process.
Mounting Prints On Wood Panel
Print out the artwork onto Premium Presentation Paper (Matte).
Brush Matte Gel Medium (Liquitex) onto wood panel and back of print.
Cut Excess Paper off with cutting knife.
Place panels upside down, put weight on it and let dry over night.
Apply Coating to Artwork
Apply a coat to print and sides of the panel..
Gel Gloss might leave bubbles, so you need to experiment before committing to your proper art work.
Mod Podge will give you a nice coat, but it will remain sticky. Let the coat dry for at least a week and then seal it.
Letting the Artwork Dry
Easy: Do nothing. Let the coat dry.
Putting on the final Varnish
Put on the final Varnish.
Dura Clear Gloss Varnish from DecoArt works well.
You can also use Gloss Polymer Varnish from Golden.
Letting it Dry
Let the varnish dry. Apply a second coat if you like. Artwork should be fully dried after two days.
