Venetian painted picture frame

Reproduction of a Venetian painted picture frame with gilt painted ornamentations on the corners, and along the sides. This Venetian early 18th-century frame is available in any particular size. Therefore you can fit it with any painting.

Venetian painted frame properties

This Venetian painted picture frame is made of ayous and tulipwood combined together. We use ayous for the front side and tulipwood for the backside of the frame. As a result, we obtain the maximum strength with the minimum weight.

You can customize the rabbet width as you prefer. For instance, if you need to cover a bigger part of the painting you can ask to enlarge it. The rabbet depth instead, depends on the thickness of the painting. In most of our models, it is something between 1.5 to 4 cm. Sometimes even deeper due to structural reasons or under request.

The lacquering of the frame surface is customizable by using any color. Watch a video showing our lacquering process:

Patina (aging process)

“Patina” is an Italian word that refers to how dark and old look to be the frame. Apart from dark gold, the age of a frame is determined by a few cracks and tiny broken parts all around the sides. For this purpose, our gilder hits its surfaces with some kinds of stones.

Also, the wormholes are simulated as well, and you will be able to notice them by analyzing deeply the pictures above. The presence of wormholes does not indicate activity within or a recent flight of beetles. Remember that they were faked by us to specifically age this Venetian painted picture frame reproduction.

See below a video showing all the steps of the Patina.
