I have a challenge on my hands.

I have 2 old black paper cut profiles. Customer would like to have them framed and one day pass them down to the kids. I know I find these items to be pretty old fashioned and not my style of what I want on my walls... but do you have any suggestions of how to bring them into the 21st century so a 20 or 30-something with contemporary taste would be proud to display them!?

Thanks!

Just did this one for a customer who collects them of his nieces and nephews. And wants every one different. I painted the outer frame with acrylic then sprayed with Krylon then waxed and buffed. The liner is covered with beach sand and painted gold with Liberon gilt varnish.

BTW - customer always makes me trim off the "eyelash" on the silhouettes!!! LOL!
 
Mar - those are gorgeous. The art I am working with is not in that good of shape - ovals are cut, and very poorly - so I can't use a rectangular format on these which I would prefer. (did I mention I hate ovals!!)

Thanks, Roz

Roz, you could cut an oval mat and use that in a retangular frame. Myabe 2nd mat oval, with rectangular top mat.
Both mats could be handwrapped as taught by Baer!
