This is whats called composite picture framing, meaning it is made using 3 separate mouldings.
These are very popular mouldings for our customers and it is actually a very popular composite too. It’s usually used for oils or acrylics when painted as oils because it gives great depth to the image.
I always use glass but its up to the customer. It is always a good idea to know where you plan to hang it first because, if hung opposite a window, glass can give a shine back. It can be made up to a metre square.
This is a copy of an oil painting that is in the Irish National gallery. The frame is 16“x12” and cost €100.
