I added some metallic red and silver paint to the inside edges of the barn-wood frame to subtly compliment the inks in the image.

The moulding really fits the print :clap: , but it looks like it's cropped at the top and off center left to right. Is that just the angle of the photo?

Speaking for Abe, but it looks like shadow. Agreed though, KSU, really fits the print, and that MWH is amazing!

Won't be in a position to sell for a few months. Not likely before end of May 2014 please don't pm and ask.

That patchwork and the Troth and the MWH, terrific, anyhow, I digress, I'll bring this thread back from the stratosphere. Just went for the simple, no frills K.I.S.S theory.

Very nice mate! :thumb:



After seeing the siren I think its deserving of making the wall, so I'm going to take it in tomorrow. Its a tough one though. Does anybody have any suggestions for it? I can't find many framed ones here.

I'd recommend: No mat, unadorned black frame in at least a 2" or 2+1/2" wide profile, and spacers. I wouldn't frame it in anything that might fight with the wood texture in the drawing, and I'd make sure the silver in the eyes / string stood out as the brightest color.

This is what I was thinking too, but ill just go in today and play around with frames/and mats and hopefully just come across something that works.

So I just took two Horkey's in to get framed. I was taken aback at the quotes; one was $225, the other $321. The most expensive frames quotes ive ever received, and neither has museum glass.
Me and my girl just hit our one year, and she got me a $250 framing voucher, so that takes care of one thankfully.

The more expensive one though has a "nova" mat (I think that's what she said). I have never come across that before. She said that pushed up the price quite a bit.
Does anyone here know what this nova is? (sorry, im a noob)


both will turn out great though. I look forward to sharing them here.
