What can you tell me about them?

Needless to say, picture frame art requires a picture frame.  What sizes do photo frames come in?  What colors and shapes?  Well...

  • a picture frame is something you use to protect and display artwork.
  • they come in all shapes, sizes, color and materials.
  • they were traditionally made out of wood and wood remains to be the most common today.
A Picture Frame
  • you can find picture frames made out of silver, bronze, aluminum and plastics.  However, if you are creative I'm sure you could make picture frame art using almost anything.
  • gilding is a technique where fine gold powder is applied to a frame to give it a thin coating of gold.  This technique is commonly used, especially on wood.
  • picture frames can be found in many different shapes but square and rectangular are the most common shapes.
picture frame sizes
  • be aware that photo frames are usually measured in inches, not centimeters.
  • there are many different sizes of frames you can use when making crafts using photo frames. For example, a small picture frame could measure 3 x 5 inches or 3 x 3 inches.  A medium could range from 4 x 6 inches to 6 x 8 inches.  Large frames can be from 8 x 10 inches to 9 x 12 inches.  And you can even buy frames that are extra large and poster size.

Don't worry if you can't find the exact size you want because picture frames can be custom made to fit just about anything.
