YOU'VE BOUGHT THAT ARTWORK YOU'VE BEEN EYING ON. YAY!
Framing your Artwork can sometimes be overwhelming, tricky, confusing and difficult. I totally get it! So, let me make it easier for you.
I will share my tips on how to elevate your Artwork like a professional and create a collection like a gallery curator. Also, below are some links to sites that offer framing that fits any budget.
LET'S GET STARTED!
Here in my Studio, I offer Custom Framing for all my Artwork on Canvas, all made from solid wood.
My Studio works with an expert woodcraftsman to create these beautiful, high quality Floater Frames. The sides of the frame do not touch the Artwork, giving the illusion that the artwork is floating within the frame, hence the name Floater Frame.
Here are some examples of a Floater Frame:
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE FRAMES FOR ALL MY WORKS ON CANVAS. IT COMPLIMENTS THE ARTWORK REALLY BEAUTIFULLY!
OKAY....Here are a few options for framing, that will work well with any budget.
This is the IKEA RIBBA Frame in White: ( check IKEA Website for other COLOR options)
Size is 16 x 12 and comes with a plastic protective cover, great for prints and fits my QUIET CONTEMPLATION Series paintings.
PRO TIP: DO'S & DONT'S
1. Make sure to use acid-free or Archival materials, this insures that the artwork will not get damaged or discolor over time.
2. Always, Always, Always choose frames that you love and want to see everyday, because YOU have chosen to buy a one-of-a-kind Artwork and it would be shame to put it in a frame you don't really like.
3. If you plan or have bought a print on canvas, make sure that it's varnished. It is so important, because this will add a protective layer to the artwork, especially if that piece will get a lot of sun exposure, plus, this will give the print that high-end original look!
4. ALL MY ORIGINAL PAINTINGS ON PAPER COMES MATTED, So one less things for you to get, OR, worry about getting. ( I got you!)
GREAT PLACES TO CHECK OUT FRAMES:
DON'T FORGET VINTAGE SHOPS!! There are some amazing Gems in there!
SHARE YOUR COLLECTION BEAUTIFULLY!
