Please be aware that the frames are hand-painted to order over 4-6 weeks. If you order a kit at the time of your frame purchase, this will be dispatched once the frame is ready. If you would like to receive the kit sooner, please place this as a separate order.
We have worked with an wonderful Yorkshire art framer to produce these bespoke double layered frames. There are 6 different designs to choose from and the finished frame is either coated in a matt wax or painted in egg shell paint therefore has a soft sheen but is not glossy.
An embroidery mounting kit will also be included, which includes the mount board, all the push pins and framing pins required and a guide on how to mount your embroidery. There is also a video in the how-to guides section of the website to show you this process.
The frame will fit The Fables or any other A4 piece of art. You could also add a mount and choose to put the musicians or the camels in here. Let me know if you are choosing to do this and I will make sure you have the right mounting kit.
The frames are not glazed as I believe this is the best way to present embroidery to appreciate all the detail and textures: none of the framed pieces in my home are glazed! The embroidery will be perfectly safe like this however, if you are choosing to hang the embroidery somewhere steamy (i.e. a bathroom), there will be space in the frame to add glazing. You will be able to get glass cut to size at any framers and I would highly recommend going with the museum quality glass if choosing to do this.
Note: The Fisherman frame design has been slightly improved from the design here to have a smoother finish than photographed here.
