Center Post Base has a .1875" (3/16") post centered on a .5"H base.
Post may be difficult to bend, so removing it from the base and possibly using a vice would be recommended.

To create a "Fitting" style mount use some ethafoam and carve it carefully with a saw or knife to create a shape that matches the inside of your art. It's important to carve it away slowly when your approaching the correct size and shape so as to not undersize the form. You would then press the post of a base into the foam to create the display. If your struggling to get the foam to stay put you could consider adding some glue into the newly created hole to keep it in place.
Sometimes a stock base just isn't right, they can be too large, too small, the wrong shape, or a variety of other things. We offer custom armatures and custom bases for that very reason. If your interested in a variation of the base seen here please fill out the form below.
