Do you have a framed painting and you’re wondering if you should replace it. There are only certain times that the frame should be removed from the painting.
1) If the canvas of your painting is torn or ripped.
2) If the painting and frame has water damage
3) If the frame is cracking or falling apart from age.
Normally these are the conditions that you would change the frame. But if you decide that the frame is looking dated you can always choose to reframe your painting, and should you decide that you want to put a new frame on your painting make sure that you take your painting to a professional. Removing a frame without ripping or tearing the canvas of the painting is very important because frames are either nailed or stapled to the wooden parts of the canvas.
When you’re choosing the new frame keep the room in mind that you will be hanging the painting in. Choose the kind of frame that goes well with your decor or has a timeless feel. There are many styles and colors of frames available to you. Some frames have design features like embossed ridges or beveled edges.
A custom frame is the best, if you buy a frame from Ikea or Walmart they only come in standard sizes, if you need a custom frame, again take it to a professional. Making a custom fitting frame is not easy, it takes skill and knowledge to get it perfect.
