Ideal floater frame for art 1 1/2" thick or less. The distressed finish and substantial profile width of this wood floater frame offers a unique framing option that is reminiscent of vintage iron steel tubing. The edges feature the look of rust, even though the finish is on a wood substrate.
The bulkiness and emphasis on texture of this wood floater frame is a departure from the mid-century modern and minimalist aesthetic that has traditionally been associated with floater frames. In fact, most floater frames are ½” wide or less at the face, while the face width of this distressed vintage-looking floater frame is 1 ½”.
Some ideas for contents that could go in this wood floater frame include vintage signage such as barn-finds and other antiques, along with fine art paintings that would benefit from weathered earth tones in a floater style.
In addition to framing stretched canvas paintings, consider other single-layer items such as encaustic wax paintings on panel, acrylic paintings on canvas board, paintings or prints on sheet metal or aluminum, and laminated photographs or posters mounted to foamcore or gatorboard.
Due to the nature of floater frames lacking a front lip, this profile is not compatible for multi-layered materials such as mats, glass, and backing. Rather, this wood floater frame is only suitable for artwork that can be mounted directly to the frame.
