Picture Framing for Painted Papyrus Artwork

Picture Framing for Painted Papyrus Artwork

Bring ancient Egypt to life in your own home with a framed Papyrus.

Many people fortunate enough to visit Egypt bring home a papyrus artwork. Painted to paper made of reeds, the rough edging is iconic of this unique art style.

When framing a papyrus, Frames Now is always careful to allow space between the painting and framing glass, to preserve it from damage. This also allows the painting to sit off the float acid-free matboard or backing in the picture frame and drops a shadow of the rough edges on the frame backing.

Papyrus paintings can often be fit to a standard size, ready-made frame, from our pre-made picture frames collection. Our picture framers will show you how to select the best style for your artwork. Common choices are gold frames, especially gold ornate frames, but you aren’t limited to that – other options include white frames, mocha frames, black frames, walnut frames and silver frames, in both contemporary frame and ornate frame / traditional frame styles.

Custom framing is another great choice for framing your Papyrus, especially if you have a large or panoramic-shaped artwork. We have hundreds of different frame and moulding styles, which a Frames Now picture framer can easily guide you to the right one.
