How to Mount my Plum Blossom Chinese Painting with Silicone Paper for Dry Mounting

top chinese painting Mounting has been a bottleneck in promoting Chinese painting in the world because most framing shops in the West do not know how to flatten the painting on rice paper, which traditionally is done with a sophisticated wet-mounting process. Dry mounting with silicone paper is a cutting edge technology invented in Japan that makes the mounting process so easy. I have adopted it two years ago and have not done any wet mounting since. The advantages of dry mounting include color safe(no running of bleeding colors, fast(no waiting time), and stable(no preservatives needed as in making flour paste), while it does the same function of wet mounting: enhance the color intensity and brightness and flatten the painting before framing.

    Hi again Henry,
    My friend from China is going to show me how to frame my mounted paintings with silk brocade. I don’t think it’s the traditional kind. I think it’s a modern imitation of the silk brocade material with silicone paper technique like you show here.
    Do you have that kind of material in your store? This helps to make it look more Chinese!
    xiè xie

    I have heard of it but we don’t have it in our store. Let me know if the silicone backed silk brocade works out for your painting.

    Will do, Henry, and thanks for your quick response!

    Love these videos, thank you for making them. As a result I have just done my first dry mounting today, here in Wisconsin. I opened all the windows because the only drawback I can see with this silicone dry mounting is that you should ventilate while working with the iron. Thanks again. Love it!
