Why do Framing

We use frames of various sorts to display the special objects that we have. A simple photograph of the family, in an attractive flat frame on the sideboard, shows our family off in a flattering manner. A shadow box frame of some sort allows us to show off an object in a way that draws the eye to the object on display. A painting can be enhanced by placing it in a proper painting frame.

The frame is the finishing touch for a work of art, it has to compliment the art and present the art to the viewer in the best way. A frame can also be a work of art in itself.

Framing can also be used as a conservation tool where the protection of the artwork is a higher priority than just its display.

What Frame?

The traditional thinking is that the work of art dictates the style, type and colour of frame. A period or fine art painting might best have a more elegant and more classical picture frame to it. An abstract or ethereal painting might look better with a more simple frame. Having said that, the frame should also complement the room and furnishings. A traditional painting in a minimal room doesn’t necessarily need a traditional frame.

A larger painting usually has a larger frame, and a smaller painting a smaller frame. Having said that, a small painting can be enhanced with a larger frame.

A multi layered frame, where 2 or more moulding types are placed on each other would provide a unique look.

Glass

The proper glass helps protect the art from airborne pollution and from fading from direct sunlight. furthermore, it also protects the art from accidental damage. Acrylic sheeting can be used and is lighter than glass.

Different objects to be displayed require different methods of fixing and framing. A painting is probably the simplest thing to frame. Firstly, choose the moulding, we then cut it to size and assemble it. We then attach the fixings on the back to hold the artwork in position, and add the rings to tie the hanging cord. Additionally, you could have a more sophisticated frame made that displays the painting behind UV glass and mount board liner.

Mount Board

Mounting is the high quality board edging that frequently goes between the artwork and any glass. It is used to improve the presentation of the artwork. It can also be used to keep glass off the artwork,
