SHIPPING A PASTEL
My husband is packaging my pastel for shipping and I thought you might like to learn how it is done. We sometimes buy large sheets of cardboard or use cardboard from large boxes but for a 16" x 20" pastel we now purchase 2 Display Boards and put one inside the other making a cardboard lip around the pastel to keep cover from touching the image. He cuts the inner board smaller and cuts strips from extra to put around the pastel. It involves a lot of careful cutting and a lot of strong tape. Here arethree photos to give you an idea of the process.
