A gorgeous extra large painting was bought in . The original frame was a dark dull frame in a diffused (none reflective glass old style) glass which obsured the beautiful detail and colouring of this art work.
Here we used a silver large frame with a double mount. Idealy our speciality glass would of been used but as it was a such a large piece it doubled the price. We recomended instead to keep costs down to use standard glass as it would be better then putting back the diffused as the colour would be seen.
The customer could not believe how much colour and detail was lost with the old glass but could now be admired .
Happy customers xx
Here is an example of when a frame is just perfect for the subject. I used a dark green mount as there was alot of text on wite paper with the strong image at the top so a dark mount balanced the whole print. The frame has a distressed gold running through it with a dark green colouring so suited perfectly the fish.
Using a triple frame we where able to use the outer frame with depth and this creates dimension to the finished piece. Detail on this frame is a silver which sits nicely with the white washed wood finish. I find silver lifts a pictures especially when lots of colours are in the artwork. It only needed a little so not to over power the at work.
Great idea for a special event.
We supplied the extra large mount for the day. Use either an A4 piece of paper with "Wedding day" comments to be written on or "Congratulations please sign." Or 80 today, 21 today ect. Its just great fun to keep.
The end of the day you have fantastic memories written to look at and remember. Choose your favourite photo to go in it and come and finish getting it framed.
Another Face Lift for a small beautiful picture.
This art work was very delicate with beautiful colours but was very over powered by a dark glossy frame. Yo can see the glass is extreamly reflective so difficult to view the piece.
Our approuch (below) was to give a fresher feel by using a triple mount with a small slither of a complimentory colour in the second mount. The frame chosen was a soft matt silver with a little bit of detail to give interest but not distract from the art work. We then used the special Claryl glass that has a reflective value of only 1% enabling the viewer to see clearly the artwork.
A unique framing oportunity came in at Jarva Gallery recently. Framing a coat of arms for a lovely customer who I'm very happy to say loved the work we had done for him. The item had to be boxed framed because of the depth of the wax containers. All work involved conservation tapes and mount boards. A lovely job to do for a lovely couple.
Just to show you the start of the coat of arms piece (above) as all framing jobs start of here in the gallery. Choosing the mounts and mouldings plus any details to enhance and compliment the item wether it be a family photo, childs drawing, greeting card, football shirt or a special piece like this one..
