Aurora Gallery Fine Art and Custom Framing
  • FEATURED FRAMING PROJECT
  • April11th

    Aurora Gallery’s most recent Frame of the Month started with a really nice original abstract painting. We framed it in a very small gold frame that with a nice deep gold finish.

    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!

    Completed Custom Mirrored FrameThis framing project of the month starts with a very nice watercolor by Bev Jozwiak and a vision by the client for a mirrored frame with a high-end look.
     
    Since the perfect frame wasn’t available from commercial resources, we hand-crafted this beauty by covering a plain liner frame with cut strips of mirror, and embellishing with filets and silver leaf. We covered the mirror miter with glue on decorative corners, and then used a nice frame around the edge.
     
    Mirrored Frame DetailThe end product is a classic frame with a lovely mix of modern and traditional features. The use of mirrors reflects not only the color of the piece, but will take on the overall tone of any room it’s placed in.
