How to Use Shadowboxes in Picture Framing : Ideas for Using a Shadowbox Frame

The other shadowbox I’ve done many many shadowboxes
in my time. One of the ones I had great fun doing was the 1950 police issue in memory
of an officer that had fallen. They brought me his 1950 billy club and his handcuffs,
his whole uniform pieces that he was issued in 1950. He was caught for several different
entities throughout his profession but we started at the beginning when we was a rookie
and we used, in case his memory of. This box was like 40 X 30 and it was about 6″ deep
we had his revolver in there, we had his shirt that issued back then and there, we had his
billy club. So some of them I had to sew down, some of them I had to glue down, some of them
you had to get some special like for instance the pistol it’s what they call steady stay.
It mounts onto the matte and it holds onto pieces to where it would hold it and wouldn’t
want to glue a gun down. You wouldn’t find a glue that would hold it first of all but
they have these little clips that hold things they have clips for knife, forks, spoons and
things like that. Clips for coins to hold the coin in place you wouldn’t want to add
any glue or anything to a coin especially if it was a collectors item because it would
damage it, it would age it faster then what it already is aging. Just remember that the
things go into this box all have to relate to each other whether it’s everything that
belonged to grandma or everything that belonged to the police officer or everything that belonged
to the military guy. It has to be in general thought of the thought you want to keep it
in there and you wouldn’t want to throw the necklace that grandma gave to the granddaughter
in this because that is not part of the thought, this is about grandma. This is just about
grandma and that is how to ensure that you are going to have a proper shadowbox in the
end that is going to give you a happy life.

    2 minutes and 18 seconds of wasted time.  Poor presentation, virtually no eye contact with the viewer. No significant and useful information about "plastic clip thingies" or other mounting methods.
    Plenty of counter cleaning strokes and regular tapping to emphasise a point but absolutely worthless presentation.  'Expert' Village is failing  with this one I am afraid!
