Picture Framing Guide.
As an introduction to Framing, why do we frame pictures.
Framing a picture no matter what the media completes the work, making presentable and often turning something plain or ordinary into something beautiful to be cherished.
Choice of Frame, after many years framing I know that to see the picture frame moulding up against the Art work or object to be framed is the best and only correct way to know if it is right.
This applies to the mount as well if needed, the choices are almost endless but when the right choice is made it all fits neatly together and will look like it was meant to be.
There are so many different types of natural woods, that frames can be made of like Oak, Ash, Tulip, Beech and many more are very popular choices followed by finished woods mat or glossy, veneers like Walnut and Teak then you can have traditional imported swept frames from Italy and also modern aluminium and finally clear cast acrylic display cases.
In my experience the less fussy the frame the better, it does not distract the eye from the object being looked at, Blacks, Whites, Golds and Silvers are the most common but coloured woods finished in primary colours are becoming more common. What ever or wherever the frame setting is going to be we can make it work for you.
Clear Acrylic display cases are probably the best when you want to be able to see everything about the art being displayed cases can be made to almost any size and depth so you can even frame costumes, boots, football etc.
