This scooped black rustic picture frame features a deckled burl veneer that sits on a gesso base over a wood substrate. The veneer finish ascends to an embossed ridge that resembles antique decoration with a dusting of light color in the crevices to simulate age.
The profile width is 1-3/4” and the rabbet depth is 1/2”, which means the frame may accommodate 1/2” of material before it starts protruding out the back of the frame. Art materials more than 1/2” thick may be secured to the frame using offset clips.
Styles, genres, and subject matter that may pair with this dark ebony black rustic picture frame include horses, vintage maps and ships, ink wash paintings, vintage boutique posters, and sepia tone or monochromatic subdued photography.
Matted works on paper that may fit with this black rustic picture frame include watercolor paintings, pencil and graphite drawings, pastel paintings, etchings and intaglio fine art prints, photographs, digital art with a rustic feel, posters, silk screen prints, and aqueous paintings such as airbrush illustrations. Additional art materials to consider include acrylic or oil paintings on canvas board or rigid hardboard panel.
