    Im auditioning for an art school in the city, and they asked for a portfolio and stated that:
    Portfolio should include between 10 – 20 pieces of work.
    All art pieces should be either matted or mounted.

    As far as i know, matting/mounting a piece of artwork is to secure it in cardboard/foam, but im afraid it would be too thick.
    Any tips on matting or mounting or the process?
    I'd like my works to still be thin enough to fit it in a folder, is there a way to do that?
