Making padded blocks: NM95-57/10-2-2016E-PDF

"Padded blocks are recommended for galleries or museums that have paintings in their collection. Two features of padded blocks make them ideal as support devices for paintings: a cushioned surface protects the frame or edges of an unframed painting from abrasion; and a skid-proof bottom reduces the chance of slipping"--Introd., p. 3.
