This small black box frame offers a muted charcoal gray two-tone finish. Perfect gallery-style choice for artists and students in need of a clean, contemporary, professional, affordable framing option, or as a small black shadow box picture frame. The look of fine wood grain sits over a gesso base on a wood substrate. The profile width is ¾”, and the rabbet depth is 1”.
Artwork that lends itself to the look of this small black box frame in charcoal includes black and white photography, ink wash paintings on rice paper, etchings, pen & ink drawings, charcoal and graphite drawings, newspaper articles, posters, calendar prints, and children’s art, along with small 3-dimensional objects.
Due to the depth of this small black box frame, the floating of objects is possible, such as floating a medallion or a significant writing pen or spoons onto a mat board, or floating a watercolor painting to reveal its deckled edges. To order such a framing design, consider whether you would like to build up a top mat with foamcore to create depth between two mats, or if you would like to use a glass spacer to separate a single mat from your glazing option.
Mat colors from our acid free archival selection include White Glove 9500, Hedge Hog 9530, Silly Putty 9529, Twilight 9809, Antwerpen 9849, and Black Belt 9632.
