A lot of work went into framing this Arabian Desert mixed media. The client requested that we float mount the artwork in the frame. This allowed us to created a deep bevel variation of our signature keyline mount, using a gold colour to complement the desert sand.
The frame choice was 100% bespoke, hand-finished, using a dark blue from Farrow & Ball. This worked particularly well with the night sky in the artwork. We had to build an extension to the frame since float mounting with a deep bevel required a bit more depth than the moulding could accommodate.
This ended up being one of our more striking, “statement piece” projects. The client was delighted when they came to collect it.
This project was completed to Fine Art Trade Guild Level 2 standard, and featured techniques from the following GCF Advanced modules:
- Conservation Framing
- Mount Design and Function
