    Example #3
    This image is showing ethafoam, poly batting, and white fleece. All of these items are inert, and archival safe.

    Example #2
    This example is showing the three different kinds of ethafoam for sale. The Ethafoam comes in three different types’ course composition, medium composition, and fine composition, and in different thickness. Any of these foams can be use to fill in space. They are all safe for medal frame mounting.

    How to archival mount a Purple Heart medal into a riker type display frame. All materials are low cost items and can be purchased on the internet or at a local fabric store. This type of medal mounting is used in museums collections.

    Example #1
    These are the materials needed to archival mount of a Purple Heart in a riker type display frame. The frame shown is a little deeper that normally used. To fill in the space of a deeper riker frame we use a produce called ethafoam. Ethafoam is archival safe product. It will not out gas or damage the frame, medal, or materials used in this project. In this example we see the materials needed to complete the framing project: Riker frame, Purple Heart, poly batting, ethafoam, ruler, scissors, white fleece, T pins.
