Float mounting is when the artwork within a frame is mounted on top of the matting rather than being overlapped by the mat or frame. Often, foamboard is then used to slightly offset the artwork from the mat underneath, higlighting depth and making the work really stand out. Float mounting is particularly effective when the artwork has unique edges, with the contrast of the shadow behind highlighting any subtle details.
