At Baldwin Hill Art & Framing, we’re not just a bunch of squares! In fact, you might say that we have all of your angles covered.
I picked up this piece of fantasy art at a science fiction convention a few years ago. It’s acrylic on canvas, painted gallery-wrap style on a traingular stretcher. We built the frame out of some leftover floater moulding so as not to cover any of the edges.
To build this frame we had to miter the mouldings at a 60-degree angle, which most moulding saws or choppers are not capable of doing. As you can see we pulled it off, but we’re not saying how…
We don’t just stop at three or four sides either. We can make frames with three, four, five, or more sides to complement projects of any shape!
Business has been a bit slow lately. While we much rather prefer to be busy, a slow period lets us catch up on those things we’d been meaning to get around to for some time. This is an example.
A fellow framer emailed me a picture of this Saturday Evening Post cover, which I found quite amusing. It doesn’t happen very often, but occasionally a customer comes in and by the time we’ve come up with just the right design it seems as though nearly every corner sample in the shop is strewn across the design counter. This cover, by Stevan Dohanos, captures such a moment in a whimsical manner.
We located a copy of the actual magazine on eBay, and that is what we have framed here. The whole magazine is set into a sink mat, and then the double mat is placed over that (Peterboro silkscreen top mat, Crescent gold bottom mat). No adhesives at all touch the magazine, making this mounting 100% reversible. This lovely design will be in our store window through the end of August, 2011. Come on down and see for yourself!
