This geologic abstract has a mat that I painted with two shades of copper acrylic. Since there is copper and gold paint in the painting, I thought it really enhanced the work.
The bevel on the mat was white. I painted the bevel black and let the paint smudge out on to the mat a bit. It looks very much like the mat is made from copper metal.
