When you step into her workshop to get an artwork framed, Anne’s primary concern is to hightlit its artistic value while optimizing its preservation. This is why sha works only with neutral cardboard preserving artworks from acidity which is quite damageable to to papers of all kinds. She also wants to offer a wide array of materials and colours as well as a variety of techniques, which allows to find solutions best suited to the art work’s requirements and to your expectations.
In case of a print, engraving or etching which are to be framed with a glass mount, you can adorn it with a margin and a bevelled edge, with a card, with thin ink lines, or even with old style watercolour cardboard. The latter is a tinted card adorned with ink or gilded lines of varying width, sometimes with the addition of a designed cartouche at the bottom allowing to write a title. Corners may be softened rounded off in order to soften lines.
