4 new hand finished profiles

Moulding: 21O_BDL1_MB-DM

 

 

A current favourite! Traditional style profile with our unique barndoor© finish and distressed dutch metal leaf.

First the frame is made from our shape 21 moulding in obeche and it gets a couple of days for the glue to cure.

Next it undergoes the full traditional gesso process and a dark red bole is applied to the metal leaf sections. The metal leaf is then water laid.

Next Farrow & Ball “Mouses Back” paint is carefully laid into the sections between the leaf. Once this is dry it gets the barndoor© treatment!

The finished frame has a beautiful range of earthy tones and texture which compliments a wide range of artworks. Great for small and medium oil paintings. Sufficiently “chunky” that paper works may not need a mount – a spacer or slip instead….

Also available as a floater frame to take a 22mm canvas (7023O_BDL1_MB-DM) or to take a 3mm panel (7027O_BDL1_MB-DM)

 

 

Moulding: 160_CWG075_GY-RUT

Classic cushion profile with a toned caplain leaf finish. Has the look of tarnished silver but warmer and stable.

The frame is made from our shape 16 moulding in obeche and it gets a couple of days for the glue to cure.

Next it undergoes the full traditional gesso process and a grey bole is applied all over. The caplain leaf is then water laid.

The next day, the leaf is faulted, burnished and distressed. The back face is then treated with another couple of coats of the grey bole to create a clean edge. Once this is dry, an oil glaze is applied  giving the warm aged tone – this dries for at least 24hrs before the frame has a final finish of microchrystalline wax.

The finished frame has a warm antique silver effect and is a great alternative to gold leaf. Caplain has more warmth than silver leaf with a leaning toward pinky tones rather than the greeny “champagne” tone of white gold….  

Great for mounted works but also has the depth to work as a box frame….

Moulding: 22O_WGB1_DC-DR

Classic spoon profile with a water laid gold leaf and bole finish. An all time favourite!!

The gold has an laid back antique tone and the greeny grey colour of Dark Clay over Dark Red Bole changes colour in different lights and compliments a huge range of subjects.

The frame is made from our shape 22 moulding in obeche.

It undergoes the full traditional gesso process and a dark red bole is applied all over. The gold leaf is water laid on the inner and outer sections.

The next day, the leaf is faulted, burnished and distressed and then several coats of the dark clay bole are carefully laid into the sections between the leaf so that a hint of the dark red still shows.

The back face is then treated with a couple of coats of black bole to create a clean edge. Once this is dry, the whole frame is given an antique tone.

The finished frame has a stunning, classy feel which compliments a wide range of artworks. Great for medium and large oil paintings. Enough depth for a box frame.

Also available as a floater frame to take a 22mm canvas (7025O_WGB1_DC-DR) or to take a 40mm canvas (7026O_WGB1_DC-DR)

Moulding: 250_BOML1_OY-Y-CH

Large scoop profile with a bole and metal leaf finish.

The frame is made from our shape 25 moulding in obeche.

It undergoes the full traditional gesso process and a yellow bole is applied all over.

The metal leaf section is primed with with a black lacquer base onto which aluminium leaf is laid and then toned with a “champagne” glaze.

The bole section is then carefully overlaid with “oyster” bole  so that a hint of the yellow still shows.

Once this is dry, the whole frame is finished with wax and buffed.

The finished frame has a natural, warm earthy feel which compliments a wide range of artworks. Great for medium and large oil paintings. 

Also available as a floater frame to take a 22mm canvas (7028O_BOML1_OY-Y-CH) or to take a 40mm canvas (7029O_BOML1_OY-Y-CH).
