  • Everybody knows about shadowbox mats. Thsoe are the mats where you score the mat about an inch in from the deges and then fold it up. This technique creates a deep side all around that it used to finish the inner part of the frame rabbet. Shadow box pan mats are mats where the sides come up from the bottom at an angle. Most people think they are extremely complicated. Actually, all you need are three inexpensive tools that you already have: a razor blade, a straight edge, and a compass. Those tools and 15 minutes will get you the perfect shadow box pan mat.

    Regardless of your experience we can show you a step by step method of how to craft a perfect shadow box pan mat. This class includes a handout with step-by-step instructions, diagrams, and angle charts with measurements for all of the common angles.
