Today I am writing about how to frame a painting. I get emails about how I frame my paintings, I am no expert, but this is how I do it, and it works for me, even when I exhibit my paintings. So here goes.
Remove the little stand on the back of the frame.
Insert the painting
Put backing on frame
Tape the edges to look neat
Measure where you want to install the hanger (I use “D” rings)
Mark the place for the d-ring
Screw d-ring into place, make sure it’s secure!
get your heavy cord string…. you will have to determine the length
cut cord to desired length
Check to make sure the hanging cord does not extend past the top of the frame
When you are satisfied with the length, tie the cord
Tape the ends of the cord and test to see if it is safe to hang
You can do these your way, but this is just my way, so I decided to add this tutorial.
Thank you very much for visiting!
I appreciate you all! 🙂
