Picture Frames in an Afternoon

Picture Frames in an Afternoon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Learn every facet of framing: cut standard or elaborate mats; join and fit frames; add finishes; and mount your work. Thirty-three projects include styles that are painted; personalized with messages; embellished with bent and coiled wire; découpaged; or even “mixed media”—which uses everything from beads to old silverware.

Synopsis:

In just one afternoon you can make a frame worthy of the finest piece of art--or take a simple store-bought frame and decorate it so it looks like the most expensive design. Learn all the facets of framing, from cutting both standard and elaborate mats and mounting the art to joining frames and fitting and finishing your work. 33 projects allow you to make fantastic, whimsical, and romantic frames to suit every taste and decor: painted frames and personalized frames with messages of love and friendship; a frame embellished with heavy wire bent and coiled into interesting shapes; a decoupaged frame with a fishing theme; "mixed media" frames that use almost everything, from beads to old silverware; and an embossed metal frame constructed from soft drink cans. Use your imagination and your frames will complement the most prized pictures.

Synopsis:

Make a frame worthy of any work of art in a mere afternoon. Or take a simple shop-bought frame to decorate and turn into an expensive looking picture frame. Learn every aspect of framing - from how to cut standard mats and more elaborate mat styles through mounting the art and joining frames to fitting and finishing your work.
