We all love to make art work, enjoying the process and results. But what do you do after the piece is complete? I recommend having your favorite pieces framed behind glass.
And I can highly recommend custom framing by Myrna of High Desert Frameworks in Bend OR. Myrna has a great deal of experience in framing textiles from the stitching onto an acid free mat to selecting beautiful mat colors to finding the perfect frame style. If you can’t send your work to her, find a local person who understands the challenges of framing and protecting your textile art.
Here are a few quick tips for framing textile art:
- Stitch the corners of the work to an acid free mat.
- Use a shadow box frame so the glass does not touch the work.
- Seal the back of the frame to keep it dry and free of insects.
