This one’s a bit unusual. We were asked to frame a Mr Socko signed by former WWE wrestler Mick Foley.
What started as a one-off joke became part of his act when fans started to respond to Mick putting a literal sock puppet on his hand and shoving it in the mouth of his opponents.
If this all sounds a bit ridiculous, that’s because it is. That’s the weird and wonderful world of pro wrestling for you.
We presented Mr Socko on a suedette back mount, with a suedette double mount, then framed it in a black cushion frame with specialist UV filtered glass.
This project was completed to Fine Art Trade Guild Level 2 standard, and featured techniques from the following GCF Advanced modules:
- Textile Framing
- Conservation Framing
- Mount Design and Function
