Our hand finished Painted Edge Frames combine natural woods with a smooth painted finish. For this framing example on view in our shop window we have a contemporary print in a deep square oak frame with a hand finished painted facing edge.
The smooth flat paint contrasts and enhances the beauty of the natural Oak wood grain. You can pick the paint colour, frame profile and edge of the frames.
The facing, inner and outer edge of a frame can be painted, or a mix of edges on different frames in a collection as a theme.
The paint colours change under different lighting, on different woods and chosen edge surfaces.
These frames would be perfect for any period with both a contemporary and traditional look.
If you are interested in the art print we have chosen, it is a wonderful 'Language Family Tree' from a comic by Minna Sundburg in a conservation mount. More details available on request.
This colourful mosaic reinterpretation of Lichtenstein's painting 'Girl with Hair Ribbon' required an equally bright frame.
Our clients wanted a gold frame so we offered a wide range to choose from. However, many appeared too dull next to the vibrant colours.
A simple, wide frame was chosen with a bright gold foil finish, which matched tonally against the strong mosaic colours.
The gold frame set a striking addition and new dimension to a well-known Pop Art image.
This mosaic is an example of artworks which can be commissioned from the mosaic artists or there are other mosaics available. More details available on request.
