Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A frame does more than simply surround a picture, it can be a work of art. With a guide that offers detailed color illustrations of finished frames, artists can choose the right molding, mount, or finish to complement any object: works on paper, oils and acrylics, mirrors, textiles and more. Begin with basic carpentry (cutting the mount and frame, joining the frame, cutting the glass, and final assembly) and progress to advanced joinery where you'll explore more unusual and complex frames and their underlying structures. Discover a wealth of wood finishes, paint finishes and gilding techniques, including water gilding, transfer gilding, liming, imitation marble, verdigris, tortoiseshelling, and sgraffito, used since the Italian Renaissance. With tips on cleaning and repairing frames, and advice on the best way to hang pictures, this will be a resource you'll turn to again and again.

Synopsis:
