Gilded Frames In Glasgow

Posted in Blog

Gilded frames are something that we like to boast about at Art Hire Framing. Gilding is a specialist skill that we have in-house at Art Hire and like everything that we do, we pride ourselves in creating these special picture frames.

A large James Morrison canvas framed in a suitably grand frame gilded in 13.5c white gold with a textured paint finish. This frame, like almost all our frames are hand-finished by our craftsmen, starting out as a raw moulding, or in this case 2 different frames joined together. Here Eddie is pictured water-gilding this monster.

Also this month, we are delighted to see artist Gary Anderson back making his constructions and working with Art Hire Framing to create suitable frames to house these fascinating artworks. With access to the best trade suppliers and materials, together with our experienced staff, Art Hire have yet to meet a challenge that we have not been able to rise to wether small and intricate such as Gary Anderson’s pieces or the massive scale of an iconic arch-topped iconic Peter Howson oil painting.
