Mandala Art by Taylor – Mandala Materials Explained


Hey i’m here in downtown Asheville at Jubilee
Community Church and today I want to give you a quick look at the three different materials
that I make these mandalas on. The first kind is a canvas gallery wrap and
most of you are probably familiar with these. Museum quality canvas gets wrapped around
a 1.5″ inch stretcher frame, and the back is finished with black matte paper and a sawtooth
hanger so you can hang it on a nail or a screw or a mounting rod or cable or anything like
that. The next style that I offer is the same canvas
that’s wrapped around a hard mounting board. So I call these canvas float wraps. When you put them on the wall, it looks like
they’re floating because they have these spacers on the back. This is where you hang, and this creates an
even spacing. So it’s the same museum quality canvas as
the gallery wraps, it’s just finished in a different way. The third kind is a metal print. Unlike the other two which are, which have
a matte finish, the metal prints are glossy, and they are super super vibrant and vivid. They work well in situations where there’s
not going to be a glare. You can see right there the glare coming into
the camera. They’re finished in the same way that the
canvas float prints are finished, with spacers on the back. These also look like they’re floating off
of the wall. For the smaller prints, this is printed on
archival paper and it’s mounted on what’s called black styrene, which is a composite
material that’s resistant to changes in temperature and humidity. You could put this up without a frame and
display it just like that. I think they look better in frames, but it
would be okay just to have this out. Obviously you would probably take the plastic
off first. These arrive in plastic, and these arrive
totally wrapped up and taped and safely shipped as well. Those are the four different kinds. If you have any questions I would love to
hear from you. Thank you for your time, and I hope to talk
to you soon!
