Quality Bespoke Hand-Crafted Picture & Mirror Frames

All of our frames are joined, prepared and hand-finished in our workshop using traditional techniques and materials of exceptional quality.

 

Joinery, using our wide range of mouldings or creating a completely bespoke moulding to your specifications.

 

Many layers of gesso are applied by hand to seal and prepare the frame for smoothing using progressively finer grades of sandpaper.

 

Different coloured clays are applied to the prepared surface of the frame, typically yellow followed by red.

 

Then we can apply the chosen finish, to include:

English Water Gilding

Dutch Oil Gilding

Burnished Bronzed Finish

Modern British Finishing

An assortment of French Finishing

Washes and tones are applied to give an aged look if required

 

English Water Gilding requires particular skill. Gold leaf is the most highly prized of the gilt finishes.
