Each stage of the framing process is completed with precision
and care to protect the condition of the artwork over time and
to enable reframing at a later date, if desired, to suit a new
location or to match new furnishings.
The photo collage in this section shows water
gilding as an example. Starting with the selected moulding,
this is mitred and joined to form a frame. A sealing coat of
glue is applied, followed by eight coats of gesso and three
of bole. Gold leaf is then applied, burnished and waxed to give
that final, timeless lustre.
Whichever framing style you choose, from classic to contemporary,
from single mount board to shadow mounts with v-grooves, from
clear float glass to museum standard uv-protection, you can be
assured that the work ‘behind the scenes’ has been
done thoroughly to guarantee your frame’s performance and
ensure its longevity.
