Materials for art frames and how to choose them

When choosing (or creating) a frame you have to think not only about the art piece itself (color, techniques, medium) but about the materials and characteristics of the frame and how they will interact with the artwork to highlight it. Follow this guide on materials and types of frames (and how can you find them on ArtPlacer’s Art Frame Builder) to customize the ideal frame for your art: Canvas To portray a work on canvas we suggest selecting a Wrapped Canvas or a Floating frame. Choose from a variety of natural wood or painted wood colors and set the frame width. Also, establish the gap width between the frame and the canvas. Mat Matting and mat boards can help enhance specific colors or shapes on a work of art by making it stand out inside the frame. It can also provide negative space and add dimension to your artworks. Select a Single Mount or a Float mount and set its width. Choose from a soft palette of whites and creams to achieve a beautiful look.
