This basic black floater frame is ideal for artists working on canvas or printing giclees on canvas, and preparing for a show or festival.

The L-shaped floater features a 1 ½” rabbet depth, ideal for deeper stretched canvases that won’t fit in shallow floater frames. The depth of this black floater frame also adds a sense of heft and substance for thin panels, which can be build up using blocks or a wood strainer.
