Picture Frames in an Afternoon
In just one afternoon you can make a frame worthy of the finest piece of art - or take a simple store-bought frame and decorate it so it looks like the most expensive design. Learn all the facets of framing, from cutting both standard and elaborate mats and mounting the art to joining frames and fitting and finishing your work. 33 projects allow you to make fantastic, whimsical, and romantic frames to suit every taste and décor; painted frames and personalized frames with messages of love and friendship; a frame embellished with heavy wire bent and coiled into interesting shapes; a decoupaged frame with a fishing theme; 'mixed media' frames that use almost everything, from beads to old silverware; and an embossed metal frame constructed from soft drink cans. Use your imagination and your frames will complement the most prized pictures.
