Presenting the new Copper frame collection at Fine Artisan Conservation Framers, they are ab-so-lute-ly the Cat's Pajamas!
The Copper collection are created with 100% FSC Ayous frame mouldings, finished with Copper foils on a trafila base from Italy in Art Deco style profiles.
The warmth and exuberance of these mouldings compliments the rich sepia tones of old family photographs which we have been framing for our new copper inspired window display.
You can create pleasing formations with groups of photographs like the flower formation below which takes advantage of their various sizes and dimensions. Photos can be mounted using multi-aperture window mounts or float mounted to display the photos in their entirety. When framing traditionally printed photography it is important to use the highest quality mount board.
The various types of photographic processes need to be considered to properly conserve photography. Alternatively you can have copies of your old photographs made which opens up the framing possibilities and allows for a greater choice of mount board colours.
The old family carte de visite photographic portraits we have been framing date from the early 20th Century. The Art Deco style of the copper frames enhances these photographs beautifully, delivering a sympathetic traditional style with a contemporary feel.
We have been framing some exotic flamingo illustrations by Shelley Revill which also work splendidly with our copper collection. The depth of the copper colour emphasises the confident hot colours in the illustrations while the solid simple form is ideal for modern simple shapes.
When framing Limited Edition Prints such as these, we advise to frame to at least Conservation Framing standard.
