The sections are cut, 16 in all, two sections make up the frames and two sections make up the spacer between the artwork and the glass. KSW_2

Here are the four frames ready for assembly.

The two frame sections are glued together.KSW_4

Then filled and sanded smooth, ready for painting. KSW_5

Undercoat and three coats, followed by a clear matt varnish.KSW_6

While the frame dries, the two spacers are painted, again, with several coats.KSW_8

The stunning artwork arrives, ready to have a back mount and backboard cut.KSW_7

Voila, looks easy, but takes a day to make the frame and fit the artwork.KSW_9
