Yes, I'm actually looking to do one bit with the old-fashioned on-glass matting. Anyone know someone around that still does this, or would be interested in expanding into or exploring it?

You're welcome. My interest in matte paintings is in creating backdrops for my stop motion films. I got the stage setup but need a way to support the backgrounds so they stay in the same place for long periods of time. I found some wooden frames tend to swell and shrink with the humidity. So I may have to build a metal frame to hold the paintings.

If you need someone to make you up a set of metal anything, I know just the gal. She just made the hand crank for those 35's you steered me too awhile ago that I am finally getting around to building up.

Thank you for the offer but I think I can handle metalworking. I used to work as a machinist for a medical electronics manufacturer. I know my way around a Bridgeport. ;)
