Custom Picture Framing offers many choices in colour and design. What you choose now can easily be changed or updated in the future, no need to throw the artwork out.
A client brought a framed print into the studio, she liked the frame but just wanted a bit of an upgrade on the matting.
We changed the blue & red mat to an off white & gold (2nd), and from regular glass to museum. You can see the difference in the photos, but what was interesting to me was when I went to photograph the blue mat the flash went off, not for the white one, both in the same position and lighting.
The over all image is brighter with the white mat and the details are more noticeable. Colour is fun to play with and can really say something about the art, but if you’d like the art to speak for itself, sometimes neutral is the best way to go.
