I have something I'd like to share with you today.. I have a gorgeous new wall art product on offer for you called the 'Hoxton art frame'
It's a beautiful fine art print on pro 'rag' paper which is a beautiful fine art paper. The print has deckled (torn) edges and appears to be floating within a solid wood frame. There's a huge choice of wood stains so you can choose the finish to suit you. We take for granted the amount of work and craftsmanship that is required to create our wall art. I wanted to share with you the process of how this frame is made. Please bear in mind, I'm not a talented videographer so it's not a great video! Here it is..
Or follow the process here..
First of all we print the image on 'Photo rag' fine art paper and check it's perfect.
Next we 'deckle' the edges. This means carefully tearing the edges.
We make a mount to fit the print and keep it stable and flat. A layer of foam mount is added to give it height and make it look like it's floating in the frame.
The layers are pressed to make sure they stay in place.
The solid Ash or Oak wood for the frame is cut.
The corners are joined in the traditional method.
The frame is then sanded in preparation for the stain. We use solid Ash wood.
It's stained, left to dry for 3 hours and then waxed. I chose the Walnut finish.
The glass is put in, the print with its backing mount and a backing board to hold it all in.
The edges are sealed and the hanging system put in place.
It's now ready to come to me for final inspection before I bring it to you.
