Ornate moulding suppliers

Post by +Rafe+ » Thu 06 Feb, 2020 2:05 pm

Hi all, happy Thursday...

I am looking at re-framing a modern abstract b&w photo that is 900mm x 450mm and mounted on diabond substrate.

I am trying to source ornate mouldings but struggling with what I have seen on Wessex, Lion, R&H...

Can I get a view on who you are using please?

Thank you in advance

Al

Sadly there are not as many ornate mouldings available as there used to be and finding the really nice ones is getting more difficult that it once was. It is nice to choose from samples instead of just catalogue images, which may, or may not have been photoshopped before putting into the catalogue.
