Bristol skylines

Canvas float frame

These lovely original paintings capture four dramatic skies over a Bristol street.

The artist asked us to frame them in a bold, contemporary way.

We began by stretching each canvas over a wooden frame called stretcher bars. This ensures the painting is supported correctly before framing.

For a modern, minimalist look we made four float frames in matt black wood.

A float frame is a style of frame where the painting sits in a tray and has a small shadow gap between the canvas and the edge of the frame. This gives the artwork the illusion of floating in the picture frame, adding visual interest and a sense of three-dimensional depth.
