Fine Art Glass
When it comes to bespoke framing, the glass used is important. The glass not only has to have uncompromised protection quality to prevent sun, dirt and particles damaging the painting itself but also needs amazing clarity to portray the beauty of the painted subject and colors used.
Often people will not even notice that there is glass in front of my paintings, as there is hardly any reflection to be seen compared with other artwork framed with normal glass.
About Bespoke Framing
I always use bespoke framing for my large paintings and most smaller paintings also. I love the texture and nature of the paper and like to let it play a major part in the framing. For that reason, I often try to highlight that the paper will buckle according to how much water I have used in the painting process. This is done by lifting the paper away from the frame backing - to make it float behind the glass and show off it's edges and buckles.
The frames used are of oak and stained white or dark brown - depending on the subject.
All materials used in the framing process are acid free, which means, what you see framed behind glass remains so. the color or of the paper and the frames will not change color over time.
How to handle your framed paintings
How to carry your framed painting:
Use both hands to carry your paining
Hold it at both sides
Do NOT carry, holding it with one hand at the top or bottom. The glass might crack and you will damage your painting.
How to clean framed paintings
Cleaning framed work
Use a clean, soft, lint-free cloth to clean the glass. It is recommended to use a micro-fiber cloth.
Spray a small amount of ammonia-free cleaner onto the cloth. Spraying on the cloth will prevent overspray and drops of spray to run in at frame joints.
Press the cloth against the glass and clean in round, circular motions.
