Handy Hints 40Products For Fine Tuning & Touching Up Frames

The quality of your framing is only as good as its finished appearance when hanging on a wall. No matter how carefully you work, there will be times where hair line cracks remain in joins, slight scratches appear after building, miss matches in corner finishes and, especially with more ornate mouldings, the delicate finishes chip off on the back edge of joins. HOWEVER, the good news is there is a range of specialised products to help you get the finish just right.

Handy Hints 41Frame Finishing Products & Their Uses

When working with natural wood mouldings it is easy to add your own finish, creating exactly the look you want. One simple, fool proof system is to follow these 5 steps:

1. Make the frame(fill & fix any defects)*

2. Prepare the surface (sand & bronze brush)

3. Colour the frame (or leave natural and skip to pt 5)

4. Add detail / embellishments

5. Add a final finish (wax, oil or varnish)

*Where crisp finishes in corners are preferred it is better to follow points 2-4 on a moulding length, before making the frame.
