Decided to shorten the title...a bit redundant before.
Here is the frame concept. I've used it before with much success. Off the shelf shadow box (Hobby Lobby). I love these frames...the glass is held in place with little wooden shims, so doesn't have to be dealt with.
i cut a piece of black mat board to fit the frame, then 1/4 to 1/2" foam core smaller all around than the art. Glue gun the foam core to the black mat. Acrylic mat medium or glue gun the art to the foam core. I like the same space at top and sides, and let the extra space float at the bottom.
With a regular pencil I write under the painting the title and my signature.
