frames & fabrication

Period replicas

Museum-quality, historically accurate frames are made from the same materials and using the same techniques as the original model.

Frames are joined in raw wood before profiling, hand-carving and finishing using traditional hand-finishing techniques that have remained unchanged since the renaissance:
water gilding, faux tempera, pastiglia, sgraffitto, punchwork, compo, and gesso recutting

For an explanation of these techniques, see INFO, below.

See our catalogue for a selection of profiles to choose from.
