Floater Frames for Canvas
Floater frames are utilized for many works on canvas. The term is derived from the idea that the canvas sits inside the frame, traditionally floating between a ¼ – ½ inch away from the edge. Equally, the canvas is recessed an 1/8 inch from the frame face.
Pictured here is a hand-finished mahogany wood frame with a plum stain. A moon gold face over a red rub elevates the painting without overwhelming.
