This project was for a staff member at Brampton Framing - Lily Hammond from our sales team. There was a lot of work involved in this one, so we will let Lily explain.
People often ask me about my frames at exhibitions and I try to explain that there are a lot of hours involved in framing - especially something like this one.
I had spent quite a long time on this painting (see my blog for more) in preparation for Ashover Show, so I wanted a decent frame to compliment such a big canvas - 36x48".
When I took it into the workshop, I spoke to Martin who came up with the idea for the fantastic (but very complex) frame that I chose. It involved two custom painted slips, a white spacer and a purple MDF backing board; a lot of work but we're really happy with the result!
The outer frame was made from moulding reference: 241000127 and I painted the two slips in lime yellow and warm yellow to create a colour step between dark purple and the white frame.
With the help of Martin I was able to assemble the different parts of the frame once they were all painted and dried. I learnt a lot in the progress and it is definitely the hardest project I have done so far, and hopefully I will be able to do some more like this soon!
