Configurations are dimensional shadow boxes made from sturdy 1/8" wrapped paper board, not thin chipboard. These boxes are inkable, paintable, and best of all configurable! All the smaller boxes inside the main frame can be rearranged to fit the artist.
Available i 4 different sizes, each configuration frame comes with a removeable acetate lid which can be used in the final pices or not as you choose. Measuring appx. 2" deep, each configuration can be used to display your most dimensional elements, mini books, and all manner of three dimensional pieces. You can also use the curio knobs and foundation feet to make them free standing. Stand them up, lay them flat or hang on the wall.
