- Artist (painter of canvas art works
I paint new art on 48"x60" canvases and I sell them very cheaply - typically $120 to $180. I'd like to offer a floater frame option - basically build a few and have them onsite (outside art sales) to put on the art customers chose for an additional $100. Because I believe art should be affordable I have to keep that same mantra with frames too. I know it sounds crazy. If this is possible using baseboard molding (which I can buy used), what is the minimum equipment I can get away with - decent miter box/saw and a brad nailer? These will be painted white or black and very simple - 4-piece frame and small brackets holding the canvas. I know pro framers will be angry about a post like this, but my customers are often very young or lower middle income and not clients for pro framing anyway.
