Its a match….
A lady from Ballymena recently contacted me to frame an oil painting she recently purchased. She wanted it to match another oil painting she had framed over 20 years ago.
Some framing styles come and go and some are bespoke to companies which may have long since gone out of business so this one needed a few phone calls and emails to source the exact match.
The frame was a box frame with a 2 inch scoop box and a 2 inch matt white outer frame with a slight bevel. This moulding is no longer manufactured as one unit but I managed to track down some old new stock inner moulding and complete the frame using standard moulding for the inner.
After some experimentation I produced a perfect match for the old frame and I was absolutely delighted as I love it when a plan comes together.
The customer was also delighted and she explained to me afterwards (not for blog use) the sentimental value of the old style frame.
