Museum glass?
Thanks! Nope, just UV glass. I've never opted for museum glass, is it much more expensive?
Museum Glass can be roughly 2 to 3 times the price of UV plexi.

The pictures aren't the greatest, and the frame looks more gold than silver (which is closer to its actual color), but here you guys go.

If you want any more photos, let me know and I'll try to upload a few more.

Thanks guys. I don't normally go for more decorative frames, but it just seemed to fit with LOTR.

I think that frame would work better if it was painted black. Seems to clash a bit, imo.

But what really matters is how much you like it, as it's on your wall. Congrats on getting it framed!

I would maybe have gone a different route and used a white matte.

That could be it.

Maybe it's just that Moss' take on it is so simple, and that frame is very detailed. Perhaps that frame would work better with the Horkey, given the level of detail? Not sure.

Here's my LOTR frame-up. Went bold on the mat choice, cloth with a bit of sheen to it. Sorry about the glare, someday I'll be able to afford museum glass.
