Art Canvas Frames

Professional Presentation for Art on Canvas

Framing  art on canvas can be as easy as just adding wire to the back of the stretcher bar and hanging it on the wall.

A more traditional way of framing a canvas is to put a linen liner around the canvas then cap it with a decorative frame.

Then there is the float frame. The frame profile is in an “L” shape, the canvas rests on the base of the frame or the “L” and the canvas is screwed into the frame from the back. Float frames come in various depths, which means that a 2″deep gallery canvas would fit this profile style.

Another way of framing a canvas is to put a large profile frame with a simple design directly onto the canvas. Large flat profiles look great on large canvas’.

When framing a canvas, remember that the subject matter and the era (modern or historical) of the art will help direct you to a contemporary or traditional frame. Custom picture framing is all about you, choose a frame that you like and suits your life style.


About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
