Picture Framing Made Easy

Picture Framing Made Easy

by PenelopeStokes (Author)


A practical guide to picture framing for the beginner, this book explains every step in the framing process: choosing the mouldings, cutting the wood and the glass, making the mount, assembling and finishing the frame, and hanging the picture. It includes a list of preventive measures to avoid mistakes, and a list of remedies for basic framing errors. The author, a professional picture framer, advises on a wide range of woods, which can be used with different finishes. Construction methods for many different types of picture frame are given, and there is advice on choosing a frame which will complement your home decor, restoring old frames, and developing your picture framing skills into a paying hobby. No specialist equipment is required, the techniques described assume little or no experience on the part of the reader, and unrealistic standards of workmanship are not expected.
