Book Description

This visually appealing book introduces readers with no previous knowledge of the craft to simple techniques for creative home picture-framing. It shows how investing in a few essential hand tools and basic materials can save you hundreds of pounds on your framing costs, and help you create high-quality handmade gifts for family and friends.

Ten original projects include simple techniques to frame canvases and stretch canvas artworks, make standard frames and box frames using readily available timber, and even craft a 60-minute mirror frame from a plank of wood. You’ll learn techniques for cutting mount-board and glass, and discover the secrets of easy gilding, decoupage and copper embossing to decorate your frames. Step-by-step photos and easy-to-follow instructions  as well as useful ‘insider tips’  reveal the secrets of DIY framing.

Jane Warren's framing style is all about accessible creativity; making easy and appealing frames from basic materials and always using hand-painted or hand-made finishes. Find out how to create a lustrous, versatile, go-to paint effect for your picture frames using nothing other than household emulsion paint, water, and wire wool! This brilliant how-to book cuts out the unnecessary and promises to get you hobby framing in no time  with creative flair.
