Custom, handmade frames


Setting up various sample pieces for a custom, handmade frame today. We've got a swept outer frame which has been gessoed, painted and waxed. Then we have a spacer in a highlight colour to draw out some of the colours in the painting. Then we have a back wall and small inner frame to hold the painting, these have been painted and waxed to match the outer frame. We're still discussing a couple of other options, so the final frame may differ a little :-)

These custom frames can be build in many styles and 'any' colour you desire, so they're perfect for that special piece of artwork that you really want to sing in your home :-)

Pink Elephants...sort of...

I'm just waiting for some things to dry, so I thought I'd post another of today's frames. This print on cloth has been simply mounted and framed in aluminium, with UV Artglass to preserve the vibrant colours. A really fun piece to work on :-)



Had a couple of days off with man flu last week, so lots of catching up to do. First out of the blocks are a lovely couple of pieces by one of our younger artist clients. We've framed them in red with a red spacer at the side and then the artwork is floated over red velvet style mount board. Very striking :-)

Lots of frames out of shot waiting to have their glass cut room to swing a cat...good thing I've got a dog....curry, beer, sleep and then back to the framing in the morning, then I need to start on a portrait commission in the afternoon...why are there only 7 days in a week, it's not enough... :-)
