Framing commissions welcome
Over 250 frame styles to choose from
WHAT TYPE OF PICTURE DO YOU FRAME?
Polkadot Pictures frames paper-based items such as original watercolour paintings, prints, photographs, documents, certificates and paper memorabilia.
DO YOU RE-FRAME EXISTING PICTURES?
Yes - a new frame and mount can make a huge difference to a picture. Many older pictures have mounts that are faded or have a cream-coloured bevelled edge which has turned brown with age. With a new white-edged bevelled mount and an updated frame, a picture can be rejuvenated and take pride of place in the home.
Watercolour painting of Wetherby Golf Club by artist Carol Peace
This photograph of a Britannia aircraft was re-mounted with a royal blue inner mount which captures the branding of the airline. The neutral-coloured outer mount and frame complement the colour of the aircraft.
WHAT SIZE OF PICTURE DO YOU FRAME?
Polkadot Pictures & Framing specialises in framing small to medium sized pictures. Typically paintings brought to Polkadot Pictures for framing are up to around A3 size, with many being smaller and some being up to around A2 size.
The finished size of this map of Leeds was slightly larger than A2. Polkadot Pictures & Framing handcrafts small to medium sized pictures up to around A2 size.
WHAT CHOICE OF MOUNTS AND FRAMES DO YOU OFFER?
The red inner mount of this framed certificate focuses the eye and provides a contrast to the certificate itself.
Polkadot Pictures & Framing has dozens of mount colours to choose from. Some customers like to combine a coloured inner mount with a neutral outer mount, as shown here on this certificate.
Polkadot Pictures & Framing offers a choice of over 250 contemporary frame styles, and new designs are added on a continuing basis. The frame styles are specially chosen to complement the small to medium sized pictures that Polkadot Pictures specialises in framing.
WHERE DO I BRING PICTURES FOR FRAMING?
Each month Polkadot Pictures & Framing holds a session at Collingham Memorial Hall, where mounts and frame styles can be chosen. The picture would then be left with Polkadot Pictures for framing and normally returned at the following month's event. Details of dates and venue can be found on the Art & Framing Events page.
I look forward to seeing what you would like me to frame - do call in to my next Art & Framing event at Collingham.
