Tool for smoothing down raised mount board fibres and subtle embossing decoration.
finishing touches make all the difference,
what it does and when to use it…
The burnishing bone is the best way to smooth down the slight lifting of raised mount board fibres that can sometimes occur along the edge of a cut. Although almost invisible to the naked eye, such slight imperfections detract from the professionalism of the finished mount if left untreated.
For subtle mount decoration, the bone itself also makes an effective embossing tool. By pressing down on the mount, you can score an indent into the surface of the mount board.
NB. Different mountboard finishes and textures are more susceptible to raised fibres than others so don’t necessarily feel that this is a reflection on your mount cutting skills.
