It is possible to have fun creating custom frames that reflect your personality while also enhancing your work. Here are some tips to help you achieve this. Frame Give your art the very best framing experience possible !
1. American box
The custom frame is par excellence American box ! The canvas is placed at the center of this “open” framing method. The American box, which lacks protective glass and is not protected by it, creates an impression of closeness between the work itself and those who view it. This effect is also created by the space between the canvas’ edge and that of the frame, which gives the illusion that the work is emerging from the frame. This frame will keep guests away from your canvas.
2. Each work requires a different mounting
If you are looking for something else than an american crane, then you can try different mounting options. Deep mounting is best for canvas with a high degree of relief and painting. The mount places a larger distance between your work and the protector glass, which means that it is more difficult to reach the bottom of the frame. You can use this mount to protect your work, such as a photograph of a Van Gogh painting. This mount has a highly textured appearance. Indeed, it will highlight all the impastos and brushstrokes that are so much appreciated by the artist.
The floating mount is best for works that were painted on original paper. If the piece has a very large grain on its paper, the floating mount will highlight this by raising the subject slightly within the frame. Don’t conceal an irregular or rough edged paper edge. The artist makes this conscious decision and it is an important part of the finished work. The floating mount gives the canvas a more airy appearance and makes the edges stand out better.
3. Frame with different sticks for every canvas
To complete your art’s look, you can play around with the color scheme of the frame. Pick a dominant color for your canvas, and use it as the frame. Monochrome will create a mood that emphasizes the significance of each color. To avoid an overloaded effect, you can add a mat. A black frame with a strong color can enhance the effects of a dark canvas. You can also make the artwork stand out by choosing a minimalist and simple frame. A gilded or ornamented frame, on the other hand, can capture the essence of an older painting while creating a retro feel around a contemporary work.
