 Framing and Matting

We used only genuine hardwood for all our frames. Since natural wood colors vary from nearly black to light yellow we typically find the 3rd most dominate color in the piece and match to a natural wood color.
 
  • Depending on the type of wood chosen please allow at least 7 to 10 days to complete to process. These custom built frames are built from raw untreated wood. Building the frame takes a few hours to mill and assemble. The finishing stage involves a 3 stage sanding process and a minimum of 5 coats of Tung Oil or Polyurethane to properly dry and cure.
 
  • ​Nearly all canvas original paintings come framed and ready to hang. Floating frames is the preferred style.
 
  • Matching the wood color with the 3rd most dominant color in the piece is the standard.
 
  • ​If you would like to purchase a different frame type or wood color an additional cost may apply.  In most cases this is unusual.
 
  • ​If you purchase a Giclée Print and would like it matted and framed please fill out the form below.

  • Canvas Originals come with the frame as stated in the store.
