Mounting is called Hyougu in Japanese: hyougu 表具
Hyougu (表具) : The ancient eastern craft of mounting pieces of calligraphy, paintings, or other works of art in order to preserve and display them.
Traditional papers used for Sumi-e, Shodo and Suiboku-ga will react to moisture by shrinking, resulting in wavy and uneven artwork. Most Western Frame shops are not accustomed to framing this style of work, so artists may need to know how to smooth their work on their own. This workshop will introduce you to the Contemporary technique of “Wet Mounting” your work. You may even want to mount a blank sheet of paper for a direct painting!
Wet Mounting kit is available at Oriental Art Supply or you can use your own materials if you have them.
