Picture Framing

Framing Has Two Purposes

  1. To enhance the artwork being framed using a variety of techniques
  2. To achieve this without damaging the artwork and, where appropriate, to protect the artwork from damage caused by light, acid content  in mounting material and other causes

Different Projects Call for Different Methods

A watercolour painting, a fine-art print or a photograph may be framed under glass with one or more mats, or perhaps a fillet (a small frame-within-a-frame around the image). An oil or acrylic painting on canvas can be framed using traditional “back-loading” frames, or more contemporary front-loading or “floater” frames.
