Re: Framing baby shoes

I would still look to use a thread somehow. Without seeing the shoes, is the sole glued or sewn on? If sewn on you should be able to get some thread through the same hole or at least around an existing thread. There may be some more areas of the shoe leather sewn together that a thread could be atta...

Re: Canvas to self adhesive board

Such pieces obtained whilst on holiday in Africa and brought in for framing are little more than acrylic paint on a bed sheet. With the agreement of the customer and having explained all the pros and cons most agree to having them stuck down to a board and then framed. Most frequently I cut a piece ...

Re: Deep bevel mount moulding profile thoughts.

Mark,

What sort of height/depth of bevel are you considering? Whilst you do provide a full description, a photograph would really help.

Re: CMC

Notwithstanding the Gunnar love in I have been using Wizard CMCs for about 10 years and can heartily recommend them. All support, training and advice is based in UK.

Not sure what you mean by budget but expect to pay at least £6000 for a second or third hand machine.

This also ticks at lot of the right boxes, if you like quick, simple and easy.
Not sure if this is a compliment or a slight. The brevity of my answer belies the care and detail we would take over framing such an item.

I really am enjoying looking at the picture frames people have chosen and I am certain framers can learn a great deal about trends and what is popular.
I find myself suggesting alternative framing options for some of the stuff I see during these interviews

Re: Moulding identification

Thanks for taking the time to look and provide feedback. I did spend a long time looking through all the catalogues and did tell my customer it might be a forlorn hope to get an exact match.

Moulding identification

Does anybody recognise this moulding? It is about 24mm across the face and 18mm up the back. The closest I have found is Centrado 2321GE but they are out of stock and don’t think it will be replaced. Many thanks. [/attachment] CD1DE68E-CCD1-4C8E-B842-BC3AB2BAEFDC.jpeg 56ABC017-1837-4D60-9F07-4C9506F...

Re: What do you use as a mounting board in your matted frame?

Undermount/barrier board of the same quality as the mount. I use offcuts/dropouts and make a separate charge for them.

Most of the time we use double mounts, undermount and then a backing board (CorriCor Mk3).

Re: 'Canvas' stretching

I would urge caution about dry mounting anything that contains PVA based paint, as the paint may melt during the dry mounting process in the hot press. Mark, I’m sure you appreciate it’s knowing your tools and how to use them. The HotPress has a temperature control and can also be used cold - so ju...
