Picture Frames in an Afternoon
In just one afternoon you can make a frame worthy of the finest piece of art. Or you could take a simple store-bought frame and decorate it so it will look like the most expensive design. Learn every facet of framing, from how to cut standard mats and more elaborate mat styles, mounting the art, and joining frames to fitting and finishing your work. Thirty-three projects allow you to make frames that will 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 découpaged 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. The author lives in Summerville, SC. 112 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10. NEW IN PAPERBACK
