Special deep frame.

Postby ARworx » Fri Mar 02, 2018 8:34 pm

Hello :)

I'm posting again after the amazing encouragement i received for my work.

This is a very unique moulding i made, this frame is made of spruce wood and it's only as a sample, to stay at the workshop, sometimes I fill the curve with gold leaf or color it different than rest of the frame, it depends nor client taste, but many love this special style i made in this frame.

I made it with special specifications and measurements to carry very heavy and thick art work like mosaic art or ceramics, beside any other kinds even it's nice as a picture frame.

Thickness is 8 centimeters
Width is 7.5 centimeters

Depth available for art work is what make it special moulding

It's 6.5 centimeters and possible to make it deeper.

i always make my new designs, and i will share more

Hope you like it and looking for ward to receive your critiques and comments.

Thanks a lot for your comment, I'm glad you like it :)

I do it by gluing paper sheets and i control the wrinkles, next when it's dry i color it with dark color, then some gold powder mixed with sealer.

Thanks for the explanation. :D

I've seen instructions for that leathery texture on YouTube. Haven't got around to trying it yet.
Pleased to see it does actually work. Love the silvery effect.

Glad u like it and i will try to post more in a new thread.
So much you can do with the leathery texture and you will see that in the link,

It's very simple and easy but results is great, so i only paint the frame with white, then using a cotton cloth i spread brown oil color, then wipe it.

Finally a finishing coat.

The link is from my google drive to give you a chance to see the image with full resolution :)

Here's one of the many YouTube vids on the subject of 'leathery' paint effects....



There are lots more and all do it slightly different. Interesting..... :idea: :D

(Never tried it but on the to-do list)
