How to Use Shadowboxes in Picture Framing : How to Use a Floater Frame


Here talking to you today about floater frames
are fairly new to framing. It’s something that they thought of in the last 10 years.
It’s something that has made canvas pictures quite nice. You can take a stretch canvas
picture and put it down into your frame to where your frame sits there and the picture
would sit here and you have a little bit of air gap. You would a museum wrap your canvas
stretch so that you saw enough staples on the edge and it would be mounted into the
frame like so and it’s just an accent for your canvas picture. It would just set in
there like so. These two happen to be the most popular in my frame shop. They really
don’t have the little whale that you would normally see in the back of the frame. They
are very flat here, the big opening is there and that is to give your air free canvas but
you screw into this and into your canvas to hold it to where you want it to be. It’s a
very classy look I really like the new thoughts that they have come up recently.

    Interesting videos, but they would be SO much more helpful if you could show a finished version so we could see what it actually looks like. I'm not sure I'm imagining it correctly. Hope you'll consider that please!
