Decorations of Period Picture Frames

The carving is handmade and you can watch a video of the carving process following this link to our Youtube Channel. | The Decoration on the flat surface is also handmade and Gilders use a special kind of nail to make any single tiny hall. As a result, the halls, look like a unique 17th century Bolognese ornate.

Patina (Antique dark color)

“Patina” is an Italian word that refers to the color of the frame. To complete the process of darkening our Period Picture Frames Gilders use some different kinds of stones to hit them. That way few tiny broken parts emerge from the gilded surface and let appear the row wood. Our gilders fake wormholes as well, and if you look carefully at the picture above, you’ll see them. In conclusion, any damaged little part of the patina is just a part of a bigger plane.
