mounting transparency


Inga Marie Carmel
 

HI

I made allowances to hem the sides and bottom and put a casing at the top for a bar to hang this from. Now I’m wondering if there is a better way. Any suggestions? I have not secured the loose threads in back yet in this picture. I’d like to hang it so that light shines through, although the back won’t really hold up to close scrutiny ;)

Look at Laura Viada’s website. She mentioned a new way to display transparencies when she gave a program. Another option is sandwiched between plexiglass.

I hang my transparency curtains by making a casing at the top and bottom and then inserting clear poly rods in the casings. The top rod has a small screw eye at each end for hanging. The top casing is large enough for the rod and screw eye to pass through. One could use an expandable curtain rod at the top though and it'd work just as well. Some weight at the bottom makes the transparency hang straight.

Oh dear, please don’t sandwich any weaving between two pieces of plexi or glass, put spacers on the front or an acid free mat, and acid free mat board or acid free paper the behind the textile.  That’s a disaster waiting to happen.-Su who in another life saw some of these disasters.

Sorry, I guess I just assumed that everyone would realize that spacers would be needed. This would not be my favorite method anyway.

Thanks. That’s kind of what I planned for. I was going to use a hollow metal rod. But plexiglass might be nicer. Glad to get validation on that. !

Thanks Sherri, I’ll check with Laura. I’d like this to be looser than it would be between plexi… but just not saggy.

I have good results when hanging pieces when I insert some drapery cord that
is weighted in the lower hem. It balances the piece but is flexible enough
to accommodate any slight imperfections in the lower edge. I am used to
seeing transparencies hanging freely with both sides visible, often in
windows.

Hello, I made a stand with a metal rod, like this

Hi Marie

 

Here is another suggestion for mounting a small-ish transparency.  The top and bottom are sandwiched between two pieces of wood that was grooved to accept the depth of the cloth.  A piece of nylon fishing line was included in the top to create a hanger.

I would not normally suggest clear acrylic but this might work:

That was pretty unprofessional in terms of textile knowledge - hanging those
pieces by the fringe(strings???) will not help them and put undue stress on
the weavings, even though small.
