Pieces of calligraphy on silk or paper can be mounted on horizontal or vertical scrolls. Mounting is painstaking work that requires a specialist. It eliminates creases and the crinkling of the paper when the ink dries. Mounting involves gluing the work to a stronger backing paper and then placing it on a scroll. Rice paper is ideal for this operation.
