Mixed media artwork by Virgil Baruchel @virgilbaruchel framed by us in a thin maple shadowbox

Nice view of the moon outside our window this afternoon. 🌔 This frame was brought to us by a customer who asked us to reframe her watercolour painting in a narrower frame. The frame was too wide and heavy looking for the watercolour, but looks great with the its new bevelled mirror inside. We can supply bevelled mirrors like this in any custom size.

Here is what the linen wrapped mat looks like from the reverse side. This technique works very nicely with silks an other fabrics too! We use artist’s acrylic gel medium t glue the fabric to the mat
