A customer bought in a seascape for framing the other day. Perhaps not surprisingly the image is predominantly blue and the customer wanted a frame in keeping with the image.
We settled on a blue, waxed and slightly distressed, hand finish.
The moulding chosen was a 30mm wide profile with a simple beading on the outside edge and a chamfered sight edge.
I painted the finished frame blue and carried out a bit of work that adds a simple battered and distressed finish. Finishing off with a light application of dark wax which was rubbed and polished to give a finish reminiscent of a frame that has a few years behind it.
A simple but effective hand finished frame which works well with the subject.
