Frame of the Month February 2017

Eastlake style Button Frame

We were given the challenge of framing 7 buttons. They had to be all different. After choosing an assortment of vintage buttons we designed an Eastlake style frame. We mounted the buttons on silk and cut small fillet frames for each and recessed each into the larger mat covered in the same silk. The areas of the frame that were carved and the small fillet frames were gilded with varigated metal leaf and the frame itself was a black paint finish. We won first place in a regional competition and popular choice in a local event. It qualified to go to the national event, but didn't make the trip. Check out our facebook page for more images
