We love a challenge, and this felt artwork of a forest scene was definitely one. Our client wanted us to mount it over the edges, but we had a different vision. We thought the uneven edges were part of the charm and beauty of the piece, and we wanted to showcase them in a float mount. We explained our idea to the client and persuaded her to give it a try.
We attached the artwork to a white back mount and added one of our signature keyline mounts in front of it. Then we framed it with a deep matt black frame to create a stunning contrast. The result was a unique and eye-catching presentation that enhanced the felt artwork.
The client was thrilled with the outcome and glad that she trusted our professional advice. Sometimes, it’s worth listening to the experts when it comes to presenting your cherished artwork to its full potential.
