THE LIGHTNESS OF THE WAVES CAPTURED IN YOUR PICTURE FRAME
Freely mounted with Herma sticker
The picture seems to float effortlessly in the distance frame and thus unfolds a special effect. It is fixed on the back. This principle is very well suited for corrugated paper and specially designed edges have the possibility to show to their advantage. Altogether a beautiful depth effect develops, which makes your picture very special. The picture is smaller than the picture frame and the glass does not lie on the object to protect a possibly sensitive surface or to avoid damage to the glass.

- sandbag or empty water glass with rounded bottom
- soft pencil
This type of mounting is suitable for:
The Herma stickers are particularly suitable for wavy paper work, whether with or without a sensitive surface. For example watercolours or works on handmade paper. But also prints, photos, chalk drawings and pastel drawings are particularly suitable for Herma stickers. Due to their medium adhesive strength, however, they should only be used for medium-sized and medium-heavy work. Smaller works, on the other hand, can also be mounted using less adhesive methods. This can be done, for example, with photo corners or, if you prefer the particularly fast method, with the Guddy Dot Roller. For heavy works, however, you will have to resort to more stable methods.
This type of mounting is not suitable for:
The Herma stickers are not suitable for large and heavy works, as it is difficult to remove the pictures from the back wall cardboard later and adhesive residues can remain. This method is therefore not suitable for valuable pictures or originals.
Here's how it works:
Place all utensils within reach and open the picture frame.
Insert your image into the basic element in the desired position by eye measurement. It is best to hold and lift your paper diagonally. This way you can prevent unwanted creases.
Measure the exact position of your image. Take some time for this step to prevent annoyances later on. Since papers don't always have to be exactly right-angled, measure all sides.
Now carefully remove dust and foreign objects from your image.
8. Insert distance strips
The next step is to insert the distance strips back into the frame. Make sure that one end is on an outer edge.
9. Push the distance strips together
Now push the inserted distance strips against each other in order to achieve a perfectly fitting result again.
Now weigh down your image with a sandbag or an empty water glass to fix the image in place. For larger works than in the example, you can first weigh down at the bottom and then at the top so that the paper needs less bending.
If the paper is so strongly corrugated, mount only at the points where the paper touches the back wall by itself. These contact points are marked with a pencil about 5 millimetres inwards, or they should be marked inwards so that the adhesive point cannot be seen without putting the paper under tension.
Place the adhesive sticker on the back wall cardboard and rub it on. It is best to start from the top. Carefully pull off the tab of the sticker and place the paper on it. Carry out this step carefully so that no waves are pressed into the paper. Now all you have to do is rub the adhesive dot.
11. Clean the glass
In the next step, wipe dust and possible fingerprints off the glass plate to get the best possible result with your image.
12. Put on the frame
Reattach the frame and press lightly. The HALBE magnetic frame principle makes it easy and fast to put on.
Make sure that the paper is held firmly by the adhesive corners and that the center does not bend forward.
10. Insert glass
Now carefully reinsert the glass pane of your picture frame into the frame.
With this special mounting method your picture becomes a real eye-catcher. The entire work of art is visible and the natural curvature of the paper is preserved.
The color of the back wall cardboard should be a shade darker or more yellow than the paper of the picture. So the picture generally looks whiter, fresher and newer.
