Re: Nice easy way to fill gaps in corner joint.

I keep a range of tester pots from B&Q for touching up coloured frames, and for white I have a pot with white emulson paint which has thickened a bit like toothpaste, and just use that then wipe off with a damp paper towel

Re: Advice on framing an Indian wall hanging

That's the way I would do it, sew it on the mountcard showing the edge of the material, it's not going to be a quick job, so you need to charge real money for it, you'll need spacers to keep the glass or acrylic off the work and a decent frame to support the whole job, I would be charging well over ...

Re: Laminated Poster query

As the laminate is normally glossy and very smooth, you could get Newton's rings where both the laminate and glass get pressed together and show as dark patches, so as long as you don't press too hard when fixing into the frame you should be okay

Re: 2 sports shirts in one frame mount issue...

could just put a card spacer behind the center border, use white , same as the backing mount, all you need to do is add a couple dads of PVA to the edge of the sapcer, and fit it to the back of the center portion of the mount, leave it there over night and then reassemble the frame

Re: Black edged glass

This is a pretty good book, you can use masking film, which is see through, cover the glass with it and you place on top of your design and cut out the bits you want the gold pain to be, spray the gold paint, then take off the film where you want the black, then spray that, in the end take off the w...

Re: Black edged glass

You paint the inside of the glass, so you work from the back. First you get a bit of card , draw the window on it and where the gold line will be , this is to help you with masking the glass mount for painting, place your clean glass on this card, tape down on the very edges of the glass to hold it ...
