[QUESTION] Picture frame backing?

I am building my first shadow box frame. I have run a groove in the back of the frame for a backing.

However, I don’t know what to use for the backing. With it being a shadow box the backing won’t have anything to support it. I looked at using luan. But it seems too thick.

Do you have any suggestions on what to use for a picture frame backing? Or rather, a shadowbox backing?

Thanks so much!

I'd use 3/16, 1/4, or 3/8 plywood depending on the size of the piece you are working on.
