Thanks,
I am definitely going back for more of those gold frames. Not crazy about the other ones but it was all I could find that day. I have found that the liquid gold leaf works great on the corners of this gold ones for any skuff marks etc. I only bought two of those frames because I wanted to see if the skuff marks could be camoflaged by the liquid GL. it works great! I also found that doing the 3x3 format is easier for me than 2x3. I think from now on I will concentrate on the 3x3 paintings. Thos wide frames look more substantive and will sell better I believe.
Love,
Linda

Linda, thanks for the heads up on the liquid gold leaf. I bought one of those frames at Dollar Tree a couple of weeks ago, but the others were so badly scuffed. 'Glad to hear there's an easy solution. I'll have to pick some up. Do you think I could get it at a place like Michael's Arts and Crafts?

That is where I got it Jamie. It comes in a small bottle annd is called Liquid Leaf . I got the Florentine gold because it is a bit darker, not as brassy as some of the others. I use it on my good frames too for skuff marks. It dries almost instatly so you have to dab it on fast and blend before it dries.
Love,
Linda

Terrific - very effective - I like the wood and woven bamboo frame with this theme.

These are way cool Linda and nice frames too! I got to go back and see if they have any of the square ones down here. I love the painting in the middle the best. Lori

Hi Linda,

I was just lurking here and saw these comtemplative little beauties. The blue sets such a tranquil mood and I love the rattan frame.
