This is a practical guide to the picture-framing process, in which every step of the process is explained, from choosing the mouldings, cutting the wood and the glass, making the mount, assembling and finishing the frame, and hanging the picture. The techniques described assume little or no experience on the part of the reader, and unrealistic standards of workmanship are not expected. The author has included a list of remedies for basic mistakes, as well as a checklist for preventive measures. Construction methods for many different styles of picture-frame are accompanied by clear illustrations. There are tips on choosing a frame design to complement the reader's home decor, and a section on restoring old frames. Advice is also given on how picture-framing skills may be turned into a paying hobby.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
