The framed piece was then floated on a beautiful piece of black linen. Black linen is really dark and works better than mat board. It offers texture and a richness to the project. Then a larger gold frame that matched the inner frame was added and lined with the same black linen around the inside edge. The art is “set back” rather than popped out.
This is a really nice Gallery-quality finished project that looks very high end. However, you can achieve this look with any nice painting and without spending a lot. If you would like to try it with one of our paintings (or yours) come in and see us for a 20%-off discount on this type of project framing through May 15th, 2011. Just mention “frame of the month” and we will help you design yours!
