Hi Bees, I need some framing help. I hve a round leather carving that I want to frame but I’m not sure what sort of mat to get for it. I tried to see how it looks in paint with a square “frame” and it seems to look ok to me, but when I brought it to Micheals to see what they thought, they suggested a round mat. What do you think would better?

I think i really depends on your personal style. I prefer the square mat…My dad owns a custom framing store and alot of people tend to go for a square mat, i think round mats are kind of dated.

I didnt really think of round as dated, but not that you’ve said it, I can see how that may be. Square’s the majority… square it is.. thanks!

Looks like you already chose, but I just wanted to say that I think either would look great!

that’s really beautiful! i think square will look great, and the contrasting shapes will bring out the design.

Yeah I agree… the square would look better.
