What Is A Stacked Custom Picture Frame

A stacked custom picture frame is exactly what it says, multiple picture frame mouldings stacked on top of each other. Why would anyone stack picture frame mouldings on top of each other? first, the picture framer can create a much wider picture frame this way. I have made picture frames over eight inches in width by stacking multiple picture frame mouldings on top of each other. The example attached photo shows a three piece stacked custom picture frame. The outer custom picture frame moulding is a heavily carved ornate gold picture frame with a lot of reddish toned highlights to echo the color pallet of the oil painting on canvas. inside of this ornate gold picture frame we created another custom picture frame by joining raw wood liner moulding to fit inside of the outer picture frame. when the liner frame was joined together we undercoated the raw wood and let it dry thoroughly. Onto the dry picture frame liner stock we rolled on a water based adhesive. While this adhesive was still wet we positioned a large piece of cream colored linen onto the wet adhesive and brayered the linen down to the adhesive. When the linen was dry on the picture frame liner stock, we cut out the center opening of the linen leaving flaps which could be tucked around the lip of the liner. Finally, to give the picture frame that really finished touch, we cut a mottled gold wood fillet which was adhered to the inside lip of the linen liner. What a beautiful picture frame this finished project was.
