DIY floating glass frame from Amylee.
The fantastic 15 for shipping your artwork.
Are you planning to ship a work of art soon in a home-made parcel? You can use tape and cardboard, but to optimize protection it is necessary to use a little more.
Today Amylee proposes a great list to have on hand. This non-exhaustive list can serve as a shopping guide because, as everyone knows, it is better to have an idea of what you are looking for before you start looking.
This technique consists of hollowing out of the wooden plate, normally made of walnut, pear, apple or even cherry wood, the intended white parts of the drawn pattern. This was done with the help of gouges or penknives. The image in relief on the wooden plate was “spared” and the ink applied onto the plate would coat the spared parts of the pattern and not the hollowed parts.
Amylee's thoughts on floating frames for paintings.
In museums, paintings often have one thing in common … Look more closely, and you’ll see the frame often hides the edges of the artwork! It’s a shame not to enjoy the whole painting, isn’t it?
3 or 4 years ago, a gallery owner spoke to me about a special type of frame: the FLOATER FRAME (which creates the illusion of a floating canvas).
True, it is increasingly common to see them now in galleries, in art shows or Art Fairs. Intrigues at showing my paintings in a new way, I tested it and I really liked it.
