For some reason this was a total bastard to figure out how to frame, the colors made for some difficult matching options

Here are some WIP of my Detritus. I've been working on her tonight, but I think I'm going to need some turn buttons to fit it all in the rabbet. Since I'm at a stand-still and it's easier to shoot without glass, I thought I'd snap a few photos. I don't think the color came out fully representative, though.

This one's closer to real color on my monitor. The bottom mat is a kind of silver/brown/gold color. I wanted something that brought out the painted gray/brown parts of the ray. When the light hits, it looks more metallic gold and goes with the egg cases. It actually has some scratchy lines through it as well, but they are harder to see with the small reveal. I thought the lines of the moulding mimicked the lines in the piece, and the color again plays off the painted parts. :)

Looks great KSU!
If you're in need of some turnbuttons let me know, would be happy to send some to you to finish the frame.

Excellent frame-ups p0ppacap and KSU. Those color combos that you guys used are a perfect match for those Horkeys!

KSUvet, that's a great frame up. How wide is the outer white mat?

That Detritus JP needs to be my next Horkey acquisition. Looks great with that treatment. :pint:

Blue wood frame with white and blue matting. Really enjoying it. Taking my WBG blue edition to the framer on Friday...anyone have pictures of theirs?

Furthur Frames did this one for member Desch here. It's blue on kraft, but gives you an idea. Love this one.
