There are many talented local artists whose watercolour paintings and works on heavy papers have been beautifully framed by Lion Studios.
Due to the heavy and often textured nature of the paper, we use a special gummed, acid free hinging tape. as well as placing additional support at the base of larger pieces to ensure it remains secure.
We do recommend that artists pre-stretch their paper to avoid it curling and buckling once painted. We are more than capable of working with curled or wrinkled paper. Not all works on paper can be flattened so we work out the most complimentary design possible for these pieces.
Reframing or re-matting old watercolours and art is a great idea too. What looked good in the 80’s doesn’t necessarily look good now. That includes stonewash denim, fluorescent belts and mullets!
Re-style your art by giving it a fresh look.
