Framing Singapore Artwork Considerations For Homeowners

Commonly, framing Singapore services recommend that watercolours and pastels rest behind a mat or mount card with an aperture to disclose the artwork, with the whole lot then established behind photo glass. The same usually is relevant to various other 'dry' media as well.

This is for good sensible reasons as well as visual appeals. Because of the reasonably fragile nature of watercolour or sketching paper, it requires to be secured behind a mount, so to stay clear of needing to tape it straight to the frame. The glass then gives additional protection to the picture itself.

With a pastel or charcoal, the glass undoubtedly shields the picture similar to a watercolour, yet the mount is necessary to keep the pastel or charcoal from contacting the glass, smudging the image and destroying it.

Traditional or Modern?
This most likely depends upon the topic but the place can also have a bearing on the frame.

A heavy gilt frame might not look the component in a minimalist, ultra-modern glass and steel office for instance.

Modern frames recommend tidy lines, cleanliness and perhaps fit a photo in a modern design, whereas even more standard frameworks break down an air of longevity, classiness and eternity.

It's a generalisation, I recognize, yet you do need to have some respect to the design and topic of your photo, along with place when adding the frame.

What about the mat colour?
The whole idea of matting is to place a lot more emphasis on the art itself, so when it involves picking colour, use restraint. An understated white or beige will look superb with the majority of anything. If you want some drama or the piece is virtually consistently white, think about a gray or black mat to set it off.

If you 'd like, you can include an accent mat-- a second mat that rests inside the primary mat and produces a slim border around the art work. This accent mat isn't essential; it can be gilding the lily. But if you go for it, think about picking a colour that's discovered in the art itself-- a bit of red you want to highlight, as an example, or a grey undertone from the skies.

Size of painting and surrounding environment
Dimension does matter here.

If you want your piece of art to mount in a small recess or in between 2 pieces of furniture, a huge framework plus mount may make the general photo also large for the space.

Yes, it might still fit, however this is your work of art remember and you don't desire it shoe-horned into an area that's not going to let individuals see it as you meant.

As a rule of thumb, you can add about 4 to 6" (100 - 125mm) to the elevation and size of your canvas or paper and this will give you a rough idea of the picture dimension when framed.

Dangle in the sunlight or in the color?
For sensitive mediums like watercolors or textiles, UV security on the glass won't suffice; these pieces should pretty much remain permanently in a well-shaded area. Dangle watercolors in a dark corridor or a dark bed room to ensure that their brilliant colours won't get worn out by sunlight.
