When choosing a Paint By Numbers design to work on, a frame is sometimes overlooked.
But do you realize how the frame can affect the overall outcome of your masterpiece? Instead of considering it as an afterthought, framing is just as important as the artwork itself.
Often practiced in contemporary galleries, the process of wrapping the canvas around a wooden stretcher bar enhances the overall appearance of a painting and secures it safely. This kind of mounting ensures the sides of the canvas are smooth, neat and free of visible staples or tacks.
So is framing your painting that important?
The short answer is yes! Not only will the frame stretch your canvas making it easier to paint, it will also make it more portable in case you want to move your painting to another room or outdoors.
And happily, you’ll be able to use the same frame for hanging your masterpiece on the wall afterward, or as part of a gift to a loved one.
