Building Frames, Frames, and More Frames!

The arrival of art and framing supplies is exciting! The boxes are from the art store and the lumber is from Home Depot.  I have been experimenting with building my own rustic "floater" frames at a cost of about $14 per frame for materials.

Here I have mounted my watercolors on homemade panels (which were constructed almost identically to the frames).  The mounted paintings are drying upside down with books and paint cans as weights.  What a mess!

And an example of a finished painting mounted and framed, hanging on the wall.
