Framing Suggestions

Post by jupitermako on 2012-07-11, 19:49

Hi, I'm new to quilling and I have made several pictures which I would really like to frame but I am using 1/8" strips and I can't seem to find frames that don't crush the quills. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know I can use the shadow box frames but they get expensive and for delicate images, the shadow box really diminishes the the fine quality of the art.

I really would like to make a quilled wedding invitation for some friends and I don't know how to frame it! Help!

Firstly welcome to the Forum, we are happy to have new members. Yes this is a problem; there is a way which I have done. I hope I can explain enough so you can understand me. On the side of the frame there is a wedge where the glass rests. I cut carton in three cm thick in strips and place that after placing the glass back then my work and lastly the backing. Now there will be a slightly tight getting the backing on but it does work. Or another way is to order a passporture frame at 3 to 4cm and that would be enough to raise the space in-between, I hope you have been able to understand have a good day

Welcome,
you may find this page helpful, along with Toye's tips.
I myself have not done much framing but if you search for frames that do allow abit more space, your quilling will sit fine against the glass.
