FRAMING YOUR ORIGINALS – YES OR NO?
My pieces look great without a frame, however, I gotta admit the paintings in my private collection are framed. Why? Because it helps protect the sides of the painting, plus the frame, in my opinion, makes the painting “pop” even more.
I always suggest to people to take their painting home and hang it immediately. When they decide they want a fresh new “look”, consider simply framing the painting. Not only does it make it look bigger, but it does give it a fresh lease of life!
I suggest using a FLOATING FRAME. That is there no glass, and the frame looks as if it is detached from the painting – cool huh? Here are some pics of some of my pieces in frames.
Colour of the frames are personal. Very personal. And there are quite a few frames to choose. One thing to note though, the stretcher bars I use are normally 3.8cm. It’s important that the frame is at least as high as the stretcher bar.
Freight costs outside Australia usually capped at $130. For larger pieces, we recommend sending your masterpiece ROLLED and then you arrange with your local framer to re-stretch back onto a wooden stretcher. This ensures the safe travels of your precious piece. Please note, all International purchases are subject to the specific country’s customs and duty fees which are not included in the listed price. And if you live in Australia, it’s FREE SHIPPING AUWide. All freight is tracked for your convenience.
Please note: We use a specialised art courier to ensure Original Paintings arrive in their perfect condition. Who we choose for you depends on your location and also the size of the painting. Once you have purchased your piece, a Team TK member will inform you of your shipping options!
