Tropicanna Canna - Framing Idea

I like this frame so much, I was looking for an excuse to use it. It suits my canna painting, "Tropicanna Canna," very nicely. It's sort of tropical, and echoes some of the shapes in my painting.

There's a lot of texture in this frame, so I kept the matting simple, using just a thin creamy white mat. The purpose of the mat isn't just decorative. It acts as a spacer to keep the clear acrylic glazing off of the face of the print. If you put the glazing directly on the ink surface, there's a possibility that the ink will eventually stick to it, ruining the print.

If you want to put together this package, you'll need to input the following materials in your framing widget:

Print: 23.50" x 36" on Somerset Velvet archival paper
Frame: VN2 - Vintage Collection - Espresso
Manor white top mat, 1.50"
Glazing: Premium Clear Acrylic with Foamcore Backing
Outer dimensions: 33.25" x 45.75"
