Hand Finished Frames
Pure Framing offers hand finished picture frames from Guild Certified Framer, Jo Ronald. Based near Carmarthen, providing picture framing services throughout Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and South Wales.
At Pure Framing I offer hand finished frames as an option because I understand that whilst there are thousands of pre-finished mouldings out there, sometimes you have a very specific idea about the profile (shape) and width of the moulding that you want along with a specific colour or finish. Hand finished picture frames give you something really special that is truly unique – a frame designed for you that shouts quality and craftsmanship.
The finishes I offer are:
- Waxed wood (including natural, black, white and combinations of these)
- Stained and waxed wood (to achieve the colour / shade of wooden finish that you want, finished with wax to give a pleasing patina).
- Painted wood (with a choice of 132 colours / shades to choose from, I use the Farrow and Ball range of paint colours). These mouldings are undercoated and then finished with the colour of your choice. This paint finish can then either be left matte, or waxed with a clear wax to provide a slightly harder finish with a slight patina.
- Gessoed & Painted. If you want a smoother finish (hiding the marking of the wood grain) then I can build up layers of gesso on the moulding before painting it using the Farrow and Ball paints.
