Painting Tips & Techniques : How to Frame an Oil Painting


Welcome everybody! My name is Lars Erik Robinson
with Lars A Arts, I’m a freelance Illustrator slash fine Artist I graduated from Art School
and we’re going to talk about how to frame an oil painting. For example this one here,
I have the frame and it’s all taped off in the back. If we took this apart we could imagine
that it, want to have the glass raised off it. We really want to have glass on an oil
painting, we need to make sure it has some mat board so it’s not touching the surface
of the painting. That’s why I have a couple mats here, so it’s raised off of it, so it’s
not touching the, the final oil and so that’s a very important factor when it comes to framing
oil paintings. Most of the time people don’t need, actually have, have frames on all paintings.
What they basically do is they have just a frame part and then the painting itself without
the glass. Because six weeks later after you finish your painting you can put a varnish
on it, a medium varnish and it gives it a gloss and you don’t have to really worry about
it, affecting it. But that’s one of the ways that you frame oil paintings. Thank You for
joining me, my name is Lars Robinson with Lars A Arts.
