This is a classic piece of high end framing to hang in an office in New York. The
5.5cm wide section has been gilded in white gold over a custom coloured clay bole.
Black bole is available but it does not burnish to a high finish well and I also
wanted a slightly warmer feel under the white gold so after discussion with Jacqui
the gilder, we agreed on a dark walnut colour. The mount is rag museum board chosen
because it did not overwhelm the pale tones in the water-colour while still giving
the necessary definition around the edge of the image and bringing the foreground
into focus. The frame is finished with museum glass providing reduced reflection
and UV protection.
