Framed

October 5th, 2007 at 02:15 pm

I bought the leaf painting below from a fellow artist. How is the frame job?

I did it by: mounting on pumpkin textured paper and inserting in a walnut shadow box (with a hinged door!). Cost about $20.

The alternate: about $100 for a professional framer (this is the half off cost) for a shadow box type frame.

Opinions?

    May I ask where you found a shadow box so inexpensively?

    There is a nice selection of shadow box frames at Michael's. This one was already at 40% off, but if it wasn't, there are frequent coupons in the newspaper (sunday insert) for one item at 40% off.

    It is walnut colored wood stain, not pure walnut.

    Ugh, the photo color above is terrible.

    Oh, that's lovely!! I really like the colors in the leaf.
