Discussion in 'Picture Frame Design' started by ali, Oct 27, 2016.
how would you frame this piece? so much colors i don't know what to do
All advice is appreciated.
An original or a primt?
its a signed and numbered serigraph i just pulled that pic off the internet
You have to use a white ( to blend in with houses) linen liner, and an antique black ( with a heavy red rub through) frame
any suggestions on what to do with matting?
If you don't use a liner, use a white (to blend.. as Max suggested) 8ply mat since the art is so robust in it's colors.
i was thinking one of these two options. with no matte, museum glass of course
What do you guys think? which one should i use?
I would do the linen to the art and not show the white paper
How would i show signature and number then?
A conundrum that your first post didn't show (unless in the image that doesn't show). With art of that kind I would ask the customer to let me hide the signature (it would always be there) for the sake of the design.
not the customers its mine, i am framing it for the gallery
Photograph the info and put it in a clear sleeve on the back.
Do a handwraped mat cut out for signature
thanks for the suggestions and advice everyone so far.
Are there any other suggestions??? i am completely stumped on this one due to the array of colors. and i have 2 of these that i want to display in my gallery one is small the other is 32x40 they are real esser serigraphs
What do you do with the extra paper that the liner is covering, how's that going to work? You can't trim it. I'd do a 8 ply wrapped in a nice oyster linen, not much bigger than the white border.
If it is a numbered print I believe the signature and edition number should be shown which usually means having to reveal an inch or so of the (probably white) margin.
I don't like to see white on white (two whites never match) so would probably go with a double matt like Crescent Avocado under an off-white or even Spice Ivory top matt. Because the artwork is so busy I wood lean towards a fairy plain, wide black frame.
Thank you all for the advice!
This is what i settled for, i used what ever i had in stock.
Next i have to tackle the bigger one. please advice me on that as your advice on this one made it come out exceptional. pics soon to come
Grumblers your advice on designing this esser print will be much appreciated as it was on the last one.
please inspire me
Does anyone have any advice on how i should tackle the larger one pleaseeeee?
Your advice on the smaller one really helped me reach the final design and i absolutely love it.
design tips for the large esser would be much appreciated and thanked when you get to see your tips put into action in making the artwork a beautiful framed piece.
if you would like the piece to be more prominent, then you could try a shadow mat effect, what i mean is double white 4ply matting to match the tone of the border of the print, the two mats would be separated by a archival foam core, hidden in between. i usually reverse bevel the foam to make it even more imperceivable. as for frame, the tones of the print would be benefited by either a silver/gold frame or you could go with a rich dark brown frame, in regards to texture of the frame, you could pay attention to the texture of the piece, a frame should never be in competition with the art it surrounds, the frame is supposed to compliment not smother.
thanks for the advice, here is how it came out
Could have done with a wider mat other than that it looks good
