A corner of my studio 4 September
The corner of my studio, 4 September.
WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE FRAMES?
I design and make to all sizes, starting out making for my own paintings ,but also for other artists and designers.
They are all done by hand , the distressed gilding , antique woods etc.
This is important because most frames you see while they look good and expensive looking ,they are for the most part a mass produced factory product.
see next blogs , because I will give you some tips on my years of working with materials,
how to make an effective but non complicated finish ,for a frame , a piece of old furniture, etc.
next post next 6 August
see my website www.millracegallery.com for more frames
