How to frame a diamond painting?
Have you finished your diamond painting and are ready to exhibit it proudly in your home? After you've placed all the tiny beads and made sure to seal your diamond painting, it's time to move on to the next step: choosing the right frame! You've worked hard to create your shining masterpiece, so it'd be a shame to put it away and forget about it in a cupboard! It is therefore important to showcase it and, above all, enjoy it.
SELECT YOUR FRAME
The size of the canvas, the style of the artwork, and your personal decorating choices all influence the frame you choose for your diamond painting.
The size of your diamond painting is a crucial consideration that should not be overlooked. Standard frames come in a range of sizes, but if your artwork is a specific size, you'll need to select a custom-made frame. So, take the time to measure your work in order to find the ideal frame for it. Figured'Art provides diamond painting kits in both normal and large sizes. The size of your diamond embroidery is clearly visible on the canvas.
Depending on the style of the artwork and your interior design, you can select a color or material that will match your creation and the room in which it will be displayed. It is essential that the frame blends in with the surroundings and does not cause visual discord.
A gold and ornate frame, for example, would be better suited to a classic or romantic piece, whilst a simple and sleek frame would be ideal for a modern or minimalist diamond artwork. Furthermore, wooden frames are generally warmer and more traditional, whereas aluminum and plastic frames are more modern and clean.
It is also important that the frame be proportional to the size of your diamond artwork and where it will be mounted. A frame that is too thick will overwhelm a small creation, while a frame that is too thin will not stand out around a bigger diamond painting format.
But, after all, you are the creator of the diamond painting, so the frame that complements your work should please you. You'll be proud to show it off or give it to your loved ones. Compliments and a wow factor guaranteed!
DIAMOND PAINTING FRAMES
It is important to select the correct style of frame to draw attention to your diamond painting while also protecting it and preventing damage. A diamond painting will be thicker than a typical canvas, so consider the thickness of your work and its proportions while selecting the best frame to make framing easy.
The standard frame
Standard frames come in a wide range of materials, colors, and styles. They are often made of wood, aluminum, or plastic and are both inexpensive and easy to purchase in stores. They are also quite simple to use.
The box frame
These frames are made with a space between the artwork and the frame's edge to create a sense of depth. This style of frame is ideal for diamond paintings since it allows for the thickness of the diamonds without compressing them.
The floating frame
The floating frame is an interesting alternative for displaying a diamond artwork because it emphasizes the sparkling beauty of the diamonds! The diamond artwork is, in fact, attached to a solid base and put between two panels of glass or plexiglass, creating the illusion that your work "floats" within the frame.
The clip frame
Clip frames are a simple and inexpensive way to frame a diamond painting. They are made of metal or plastic clips that are used to secure the artwork between a glass or plexiglass panel and a rigid support. Although less sturdy than other options, these frames are simple to put together and take apart.
The custom frame
If the size of your diamond painting does not correspond to any standard frame type, you may need to choose a bespoke one, particularly if it is a large diamond painting that needs to be framed. Framing professionals may assist you in selecting the material, color, style, and proportions of the frame, as well as adding mounts and other customized components.
Using a stretcher frame is an alternative to standard frame to display your work while providing a strong support for it.
You can now contemplate your framed diamond embroidery as it hangs on the wall, take a moment to appreciate your masterpiece then start a new diamond painting project right away!
