Can I use custom frames for paintings?

My son is attending art classes and he has just finished his first painting. My wife loves decorating our house with pictures by him and wants to put his first serious artwork in our living room.

We usually order custom frames here - https://framedandmatted.com. But I'm not sure if we can use such frames for this artwork since he used watercolors. Have anyone framed paintings before?

They don't offer many choices, but yes they will work fine.

No problem framing water colors. They can be more light sensitive so if you are worried about conservation you might consider UV filter glass or acrylic.

As the owner I am of course biased, but my company has a quite a few choices and volume discounts on frames and mats. We are also one of the places that sells glass (including anti-reflective) online: Frame Destination
