We were asked to frame this Jackson Pollock print without a mount. To prevent the artwork touching the glass we used tiny spacers to provide an airgap.

The overall width of the completed frame was a touch more than 150 cm.

Exploding Head!

This small print of a Dali painting has a double mount cut to complement some of the geometric elements of Dali’s artwork (a breeze with our computerised mount cutter).  The frame has been handfinished with a stone coloured base, a green wash over the top and then waxed and polished.  All in for around £45.
