    Here's a modified Dennis Mathewson "skull" frame that we just did for a Day of the Dead poster.
    The frame was sprayed black and a turquoise wash was added to go with the mat bevel.

    Sorry about the reflection in the photo.
    We should have taken the pictures before the glass was added (happens all of the time..:eek:).

    I'm in the left reflection and my boss is in the right...:p

    Velly kool. I'd put a thumbs up emoji here but we don't have one.

    Did you start with the black skull moulding and go from there? What was the wash and how did you apply it?

    I have had some folk ask about things similar and am curious how you did it.

    Cool. i had this Antons Moulding left over from a job and wanted to use it up. The frame reminded me of a brain, so I found this silk print from China for a few dollars on eBay. I didn't wanted to spend much time on it, but i think still works well with frame itself.

    I like it.

    The frame started out as black with silver skulls.
    We sprayed the frame black with Black Satin Krylon and then mixed up the turquoise color from bottled acrylic paints and applied the paint with a brush to the skull areas and then just wiped off the high points.

    Love that design, Neil. Perfect for the art. And that brains frame is pretty great, too.
