Hello all, it's been a while...

Post by Orde02 » Thu 30 Sep, 2021 8:32 pm

I haven't posted anything in a while but I do look through the forum most days, you just never know when you'll spot some useful bit of info you didn't know you needed to know until you read it!

I make mostly custom black frames for artists and collectors and have just recently moved out of my tiny conservatory into (what seems to me) a huge workshop.

Please have a look at a selection of recent frames I've made, mostly Dutch ripple, tabernacle and Flemish corner frames in black with water gilding.

Hope you like them!

Regards

Matt

Absolutely stunning frames Matt, hope this doesn’t mean you’ve been neglecting your painting as they were always stunning too! :D
Well done,
Allan

Thanks for all the comments! 2 years yesterday since I bought my first moulding to play about with, I've had some great advice over that time though that's helped hugely.

What more does he need to say? His frames speak for themselves. Truely remarkable and almost beyond words!
