Empire picture frame decorations
Decorations are in wood pulp. We carve them when they’re dry, realizing the shape form of a typical Empire picture frame. The use of wood pulp, which is 99% composed of wood and 1% of solvent, gives us the chance to contain the price at a very low level. The entire process is handmade, and you can watch a video related to it by following this link to our Youtube Channel: https://youtu.be/fTQHIH9dRC8
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 stones.
The wormholes are also simulated, 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 French Empire picture frame reproduction.
