Hanging New Paintings With New Frames! + Tips for Buying Custom Frames and Doing Your Own Framing
Putting a nice frame on a finished painting is an amazing feeling and can really make a painting look even better. Anyone looking for custom frames should check out Art To Frames, which has great custom sized frames in a wide variety of styles. Most of the frames pictured below came from Art To Frames, except the last frame in gold, which I got lucky and found at a local goodwill.
I used to make my own frames so I really enjoy the hands on aspect of framing also. It's pretty simple to put a canvas in a frame, you'll just need some basic supplies, such as hanging wire, hanging hardware and some offset clips (sometimes called mirror holders); these are important to hold the canvas into the frame. I've seen some people drive a nail through the stretcher bar into the frame, DON'T DO THAT because it weakens the stretcher bar and cause some serious problems.
Have a great week everyone!

I like your framing tips. I need to get new frames. All of my current ones are broken.
