METAL FRAME INFO - Dick Blick has numerous choices of Nielsen Bainbridge aluminum, metal and wood frames that can accommodate paintings of all sizes. Other online art supply stores also offer the Nielsen frames, but Dick Blick seems to give you far greater choices. These frames are sold as "frame sections". For one size, you receive 2 sections of the same length, so when you place your order, you order one for the length and one for the height. When you receive your order, four pieces plus the hardware that allows you to construct and hang it will arrive. You will need a piece of picture wire to string from one side of the hanger hardware to the other.

I am fond of the Florentine Grey style 11, but there are other style and color choices to suite the buyer.

Other online stores that carry Nielsen are: MisterArt, American Frame, Amazon.com, etc. You could also order parts from your local frame store, which would give you the opportunity to see some of the frames in person.

Plexi Glas can be purchased from your local hardware stores, from glass suppliers (like Maryland Glass) and from plastic stores (like Annapolis Maritime Plastics). You can have the glass or plastics folk cut it to size, but some of the hardware stores will not. However, Plexi Glas is very simple to cut by scoring it carefully with a utility knife, going back one or two more times with more pressure and then snapping it at the cut.

If you have purchased a piece that does not have a mat it is because I like to “float” larger works on top of mat board (also available from Dick Blick or any framer). I make hinges from linen tape to hold them in place before placing them in the frame.

Here is a you tube video to show you how put the metal frame together.
