Hey everyone, just wanted some feedback on some potential frame ups I'll be getting done during the summer. I wanted to try something a little different compared to my initial framed Stouts so I'm opting to use different mouldings. Also has anyone framed two of the same prints but different editions, regular and variant next to each other? I wanna try it with the Taylor Fight Club prints. I also want to frame my Taylor Drive, which I haven't seen many framed besides the regular black mat and black frame. I wanted to match the colour of the driver's jacket with the accent of the frame, I'm a little undecided on how it looks, any feedback will be appreciated and is anyone trying to get hold of anything from the Taylor Show, I like the NCFOM but not enough to warrant $400.

Framed stouts for reference

I quite like all of them actually.

And I didn't pick anything up from the Taylor show. I want Catwoman, but I have a real problem these days paying double for just released prints. I know it's how it works blah, blah...but it sticks in my craw. So I bought something from the Rhys Cooper/Spoke Art show from source.

Not a fan of the mount colours and the white on the Fight Clubs. I'd go more :

1nkling, you've got it spot on, I never knew you could change the gold trim, they look perfect now, thanks for that. Any amendments on the Drive? And I think I might get both of the Taylor Fight Clubs and frame them next to each other, luckily they're not flipping for loads and maybe I can get them straight from Mondo.

On a separate note anyone looking for some of the original portraits from Mike Mitchell's first show, I've got 3 that I need to sell quickly, they've all got one corner dinged but nothing too serious, shoot me an offer if you're interested

On a side side note, have I missed the Delort Nosferatu, if not when is it dropping? That print looks amazing

Ah, I just changed it up in photoshop. Is the gold trim on the frame moulding? I guess you could use a plainer moulding and go for a triple mount to get the effect I went for.

I kinda avoided the Drive because I don't really like it. :lol: The temptation is always to go with a pink mount in there I guess. I'll have a fiddle.

Yeah the gold trim is part of the moulding, I generated this through eframes but I'll probably go to my local framer and find something that looks similar to the concept you created.

I'd love to get a pink mount, but I haven't found the right shade to compliment it enough. Do you not like the film? or the print? or both?

The film was good just not too fussed about the prints. I can see why others like them but they're not for me.

Something like this maybe?

I imagine the pink is hard to match, its very neon. A framer may be able to order you something specific.

I would have thought the reg drop shouldn't be too bad. Don't forget Americans don't like buying stuff from abroad, especially when the translate the £ to $ and have to pay more than $10 postage. And before I sound too Xenophobic, I'd like to point out 2 things... 1. It's true. 2. I'm half American, so I get a free pass :twisted:
By the way, how much will postage be Xen?

True, I am selling some books and so on. And people (well Americans) are bitching about the cost of P&P. I am charging them the exact costs to post. I think when you are used to 90% of purchases coming from the US with cheap rates, anything else is a shock.
