Distressed Gilded Frame

Bertram Whitford > Portfolio > Frames > Distressed Gilded Frame

This handmade, gilded frame had spindle knives made up specifically for its profile to match previous frames and was distressed to have an aged appearance. The artwork is by Lacasse.

The frame is made in the traditional manner of layers of gesso and bole built up over a hardwood moulding. The gold leaf is then applied to the gesso. The frame is finished with an acrylic milk paint.

Gilded with 24 carat gold leaf.
