0 Reviews
Would you like to jazz up a frame you've bought? Or would you like to make one that's just right for that special photograph? You can do both. Showcase a clock, mirror, and pictures in distinctive frames you've made yourself. Use wood and tin, salt dough, and corrugated cardboard to fashion them from scratch. Cover existing frames with papier mâchè, fabric, or squares of opalescent glass. Or decorate it with paint, lace, and silk flowers. Master basic woodworking skills; learn trompe l'oeil, a traditional paint technique; or experiment with gold leaf and gesso. The end result--a frame you'll be proud to display. 96 pages (all in color), 7 1/2 x 10 1/2.
