Panel Painting Tips: Tips on Framing

All of our standard size panels fit into most pre-made and sectional frames. If doing a piece specifically for a frame, be sure to measure it ahead of time as frame sizes may vary. We cut our panels with a 1/16" tolerance. For an elegant touch, try mounting the finished piece inside linen or silk liners before placing into a frame. For an alternative to framing, try the cradled panels, as they can be hung directly on the wall without having to frame them first.

For a clever and easy framing technique for the 1/8" flat panels, see this video demonstration by Linda Sheets, Scratchbord™ artist extraordinaire.
