We recommend the appropriate mounting.

Gluing • hinge • dry mount • floating

Block mounting is a simple solution to display solutions.

It involves gluing a subject trimmed to the desired size on a thick board.

Mount is a way of creating a comfortable amount of space, space of the right colour and texture begween the artwork and frame.

Traditionally, watercolours, drawings, pastels, etchings are framed in a mount under glass.

A mount should echo some facet of the artworks’ feature.

Pale mounts create an airy transition between artwork and frame.

Mounts generally get narrower as pictures get larger.

It’s safe to assume that nine out of ten picture frames will be rectangular or square.

Using our expertise, the most up to date framing equipment and craftsmanship we will endeavour to solve your special framing requests.

The extent of possibilities is as wide as your imagination.

Aluminium frames look best with very colourful modern subjects.

Their neutrality – next to no favourable or unfavourable influence on the subject is their strength.

Fillets & inserts are inserted into the rebate of the moulding, providing the frame with a distinctive design.

Mouldings are the decoratively shaped lengths of wood used to make up the frame.

They are available in a variety of finishes and are always described by their profile – that is their cross section.

Depending what moulding you use, the frame articulates the edge of the painting, affecting our peripheral view and therefore our reading of the artwork.

Framing options are greater for oil paintings and acrylics as they are more robust in spirit and do not require glazing.

Very small paintings benefit from really wide recessed frames; they draw the eye in and provide intimacy.

Ultimately it’s a matter of personal taste and pleasing your requirements.

There is a craft to building a frame and although the mouldings are now manufactured, the quality is critical as the machined timber contributes largely to the final product.

Silver with its shimmering reflective surface is perfect from every point of view.

Gilding involves the application of silver leaf to the surface of the frame, this is skilled labour-intensive work.

Most overlooked part of a paintings’ presentation is its framing. Gold has been used to decorate mouldings ever since the frame, a separate entity from the picture, evolved during the Italian renaissance. Gold with its shimmering reflective surface is perfect from every point of view. Gilding involves the application of gold leaf to the surface of the frame, this is skilled labour-intensive work.

Picture frames have been used at least since the thirteenth century. Early examples are found mainly in churches and monasteries. Since the nineteenth-century, mass produced castings and mouldings replaced hand-carved frames. Masterpiece Pictures has a selection of antique frame reproductions, examples of baroque & rococo which show the same level of craftsmanship, which are mainly used for mirrors.

Memorabilia

These items are generally collected by fans that find sentimental and/ or monetary value of the item(s).
