Restoration of original oil painting picture frame
Now that autumn is finally upon us, what better way is there to celebrate the season of earthy goldâ€™s, browns and oranges than with a bright, warm framed artwork to hang at home?
This stunning original oil painting was in a very tired, old gold frame when it came to us. We’ve given it a much fresher look, with a contemporary style picture frame to suit its more modern home. The natural timber frame is from our custom picture framing selection, mixed with the dark brown inner slip frame, and adds emphasis to the dramatic oil painting in this picture frame.
At Frames Now we regularly re-frame original artworks. It’s a great chance to refresh both the look of the artwork, and also the materials used in the framing, as new acid-free materials will prolong the life of the artwork. In the case of an original oil painting, this can simply mean a new backing board or new clear or non-reflective glass. In the case of old or original photographs, watercolours, tapestries, embroideries or memorabilia framing, this might mean new acid-free or archival matboards (or “mat borders”), as well as archival or conservational glass to go in the timber picture frame. These methods of archival framing and conservation framing will extend the lifetime of the artwork, and will prevent a need for costly restoration of the artwork itself.
Do you have an artwork which needs “refreshing”?
