Awesome DIY Floating Frame for canvas art that is 3/4" thick or less. The mahogany wood floater frame offers a soft understated beauty that is neutral for a multitude of interior settings. This contemporary burgundy wood floater frame is an excellent choice for framing original paintings and giclee prints, stretched canvas, along with canvas boards and rigid panels, and mounted and laminated posters and photographs on foam core or gatorboard.
The look of a floater frame around a stretched canvas means that you can see the entire surface of the painting when it’s framed, because there is no lip on the front of the profile. Instead of being secured by a front lip, the painting is attached from the back with screws or offset clips.
The DIY floating frame aesthetic originated as a mid-century modern concept when abstract expressionists and color field painters made their work so large that framing was cost-prohibitive.
As an alternative to traditional frames, wood strips were used along the perimeter of canvases in order to protect the paintings while in the possession of the artist and during transport. As the aesthetic developed, art buyers started incorporating the minimalist look of wood strips into their framing, which developed into the DIY floating frame profiles we see today.
As a contemporary frame option, this burgundy wood floater frame may be used with small or miniature paintings, medium sized pieces, or fairly large paintings or giclee prints, and works well for artists selling at art festivals and galleries.
