    Mounting a Pastel to a Panel

    Oh boy, having never framed a pastel before and now reading through some posts about it I feel like this may be a tough one! I make custom frames and have been asked to make one for a pastel artist. Basically it's similar to a floater style frame with glass. The pastel (7" x 9") needs to be...

    Opinions Wanted Floater Frames and Keyed Canvas

    I'll usually just screw together a stretcher and floater combo, or sometimes use offsets. But I'm getting more particular, and I'd like to offer a higher end ("bells & whistles") keyable stretcher in a floater. I'm thinking of two scenarios: 1) use a type of offset where one side is a groove...
