Here we have a vintage washing machine poster which came in as part of an amazing collection of posters that we framed up for a customer recently. This one was a real feature piece (being about 130cm tall) so we opted for a simple, but striking, thick white gesso frame.
A gesso frame is made from bare wood which is covered with a mixture of animal glue and very fine chalk (The gesso), several coats of gesso are applied and once dried its sanded to give a beautiful smooth finish, some primer and a couple of coats of paint finish the job. its a time consuming process, but the end result is beautiful.
