Com­pos­ite Framing

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.
