Float Mounting an Oil Painting…

Recently one of our customers came in with a lovely oil painting with a request for a specific look for their frame. We were able to match their unique requirements by hand finishing a moulding from our range.

The frame was distressed, using a technique we have perfected over time at Simon Robinson & Son, to give a weathered finish. The subtilty of the finished frame really complemented the oil painting and the final effect was stunning.

To further enhance the look, we incorporated a gap around the oil which gave the appearance of the canvas floating within the frame. Also, we included a spacer to set the canvas in relief and deepen the gap between the glass.

Here we added our special clear colour glass to eliminate as much reflection as possible so the framed oil can be viewed in the clearest way.
