I don't quite know how this happened but I have about 100 black picture frames sitting around the house. In spite of what it looks like I have never been entitled to an Ikea discount and I have never worked in an art gallery. Rather than donating all of them I thought I'd try and give a few of them a new lease with some paint and stripes.
What I used:
- Plain black frame
- Frog Tape painter's tape
- Martha Stewart Liquid Gilding
How To Do It:
2. Cut the tape in the centre and tuck underneath the frame.
3. Use your liquid gilding or any other paint you're using and paint the areas that aren't taped off.
4. Pull the tape off immediately before the paint dries so you don't end up pulling paint when you remove the tape.
I actually really disliked this print in a plain black frame (booooring!) but I love it like this.
