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

Going through our archives we came across this photo of a vibrant acrylic painting from Africa (artist unknown) we framed in a dark brown wood frame with a subtle scoop profile back in 2014.
