Exam Nerves!

Good morning forum! :)

I am booked in to do my GCF exam next month and starting to get a bit nervous! I’ve had great advice from my colleagues who passed years ago, but I’m wondering if there’s anyone on here that has done the exam recently and willing to share any tips?

Many thanks! Fran :wink:

Re: Mount sizing

Well I think it’s safe to say that we all work in very different ways, but it’s definitely got me thinking and I’ll probably scrutinise mount sizing a bit more! I think I do a weighted bottom maybe 10% of the time but only when it is requested. I think most of my customers don’t realise that it’s an...

Mount sizing

Hi guys :) I was just curious to see what the overall thoughts are about mounts and should they ALWAYS be bigger on the bottom? In my opinion, it’s dependent on the artwork and is sort of “outdated” because we don’t tend to hang our pictures that high anymore. I had a friendly chat with another fram...

Re: Cassese underpinner model

Hi Jonathan! Firstly, I’m so sorry for the late reply! Bank holiday madness at the framers I’m currently at! Thank you so so much for letting me know about the model I’m after. I had a feeling it was probably discontinued or upgraded as the one I used was really old. Now I know the model number I ca...

Cassese underpinner model

Hi forum :D I’m still trying to keep an eye out for a second hand underpinner. I have used quite a few in the past but my favourite one is pictured below. It wasn’t my machine, and I was only at that particular framers for a short time and I can’t remember the model number. This is the only photo I ...

Re: Attaching a fringe

Sewing is what I would do/have done! I had a customer bring me an antique Indian shawl that measured 1000x1500mm so I can’t completely understand the massive task ahead of you! I stitched the shawl onto conservation board cut to the size of the actual body of fabric to stiffen it and make my job eas...

Re: Hello, another newbie here, looking for advice!

Wow, thank you ALL for the amazing responses and kind welcomes! I don’t know why I hadn’t registered before! :lol: After reading some of your suggestions about machinery, I think that I really need to do a bit more research on what I should go for. Of course, ideally I’d love a full sized Morso, but...

Hello, another newbie here, looking for advice!

Hello everyone! I’ve spent years dropping in and out of Framer Forum looking for advice so thought it was time to actually register! I’ve been picture framing for nearly 10 years, working for various companies. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but it was just something I fell into and realised I’...
