Frame Your Art and Add Hanging Hardware

During my time working on videos for ArtistsNetwork.tv, I’ve had the chance to work with a lot of wonderful artists and because they’re also talented instructors, I’ve made a lot of artwork that I’m actually proud of! But when it comes to framing my artwork to hang, I’m lost. Or at least, I was.

When Crystal Neubauer came to the studio to film four new collage videos she not only demonstrated her collage, mark-making and encaustic techniques, she also demonstrated how to protect the flat artwork by displaying it in a shadowbox-style frame and adding hanging hardware to the back. If you want to learn to frame your art and add secure hanging hardware, the video below will teach you how!

D-Rings and wrapped wire attached to the back of a wrapped canvas.

This clip from Crystal’s video Expressive Collage Workshop: Abstract Mark Making picks up after we’ve sealed our flat collages with Krylon Spray Varnish for Multi-Media in a Matte finish and attached them to 140-lb. watercolor paper with YES! Stickflat paste.

In this demonstration you’ll learn how to:
  • choose the size of frame and mat to truly showcase your art.
  • attach your flat art securely to the mat.
  • frame your art.
  • screw d-rings to your frame.
  • attach wrapped wire to the d-rings for a secure, gallery-style hanging system.

Now that I know just how easy this type of framing is, one of my projects for the next cool, Autumn weekend is to grab a bunch of frames and the hanging hardware supplies my toolkit came with and spend a few hours getting my artwork up on the walls!
