Framing Techniques – ChipScapes on Canvas

This style of framing provides a more vibrant look to my artwork.  With no glass between the viewer and the art, the colors jump out. The texture of the canvas (as seen in the picture to the right) gives the artwork a warmer feel.

Although the canvas has a UV protective coating on it, they are more susceptible to damage because they are not protected by glass.  Gentler handling is necessary.

ChipScapesTM on Canvases are gallery wrapped canvases. Gallery wrapped means the canvas is printed larger than the wood frame, so that the image spills over the sides and around the back. I really like this 3D look. The canvas is stretched and folded over the frame and stapled to the back (see picture at left).

The artwork is ready to hang. Hardware to hang the artwork, is mounted on the back on the frame. This includes the screws, eyelets, wire, and frame bumpers.  Also, a certificate is attached in plastic envelop.  The certificate provides the artwork’s title and information about the artwork and is signed by me.

Should youCanvas_Back wish to mount the artwork in your own frame. The hanging hardware can be easily removed from the back. Also, upon request I can ship the artwork rolled up in a tube with, or without, the canvas stretchers. This will save on shipping costs for larger artworks, but will require you to stretch the artwork, or have a framing shop stretch it for you.
