Welcome to dickblick
These unique solid wood frames are so named because the illusion they create is that your artwork is "floating" within the frame instead of being covered by it — perfect for displaying a gallery wrap canvas where no staples are visible. The canvas easily attaches to the stretcher bars from the back side with screws.
The Blick Grande Floater Frame features a 1-3/8" thick moulding — for when you want to make a grand statement! Three color combinations are available in a variety of popular sizes to accommodate 3/4" deep or 1-1/2" deep canvases. Great care is taken in finishing the wood, and all colors are hand-applied. The Gold Leaf frame features several brush coats of gold leaf, and the Gold Crackle frame achieves its distinctive appearance via a special burnishing technique.
Because our Blick Grande Floater Frames are finished using an "Old World" technique, the individual leaves are separated by a visible line. This thin line is inherent to the hand-leafing process and should not be considered a defect in the frame’s appearance.
Choose Blick Grande Floater Frames for a stunning presentation every time!
Note — Frames are sized by the opening, not by the outside of the molding. To determine the size of frame to order, measure the outside of your artwork and order that size frame.
Frame Depth — To find a frame that will accommodate your artwork, measure the depth of the artwork, including any matting or mounting materials, and order a frame with a depth that is, at a minimum, the same as that measured depth.
Color Matching — We do our best to match the color of frames, both on our website photography and in our catalogs, but differences in technology may affect the appearance of the photo on your screen. You are entitled to return, for refund or credit, any frame that does not meet your expectations.
Open Back Frames — These frames are meant to be hung on the wall and are sold as just the frame face. They are not shipped with backing material, glazing material, or hanging hardware. The open back frames are commonly used for traditional profile stretched canvases.

This is my first floating frame and I am so happy with it! I don't care much for the skinny ones I usually see because my taste is very traditional and they appear quite modern, but when I saw the grande version, I ordered right away. The quality is excellent and it looks like a professional framing job!
My costumer was happy and that made me happy. I used the hammered gold frame for a still life in oil and it gave it that right look. I guess it depends what you are looking for. It didn't take away from my work and instead gave it the right touch.
Perfect for encaustic works!
from Cincinnati, Ohio
These floating frames offer a simple, inexpensive way to display my encaustic paintings. Straight from studio to gallery in minutes!

Awesome frame, but...
By Vee Dee
from Philadelphia, PA
The frame was perfect. It was just what i need for a birthday portrait. However, I wrapped the portrait with wrapping paper and kept it in place with scotch tape. As the birthday person open the gift, the paint came off the frame, as well. Luckily, the recipient was so happy with the portrait, he overlooked the minor damage.
I love these frames!
from Chicago, Il
Look great, good price. I have ordered four so far. A super solution to cut down on framing costs but still showcase the art.

The construction made it easy to fit the thinner canvas and use the screws without mistakes. The look was versatile and enhanced the artwork very nicely! The order came faster than expected, which was great since I had a tight deadline.
Floater frames have poor finish
By Cathy the Painter
Modern, bright gold leaf metallic with rich black insert. Very sturdy construction. However, one of my frames had dents and flaws in the finish which cannot be touched up. I will not buy these again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the issues with the frame you received, and we're happy to help you with this. One of our Customer Care Agents will be in touch via email to assist you.

Great frames and prices!
from Sonoma CA
I am a painter who participates annually in an Open Studios event so good framing is important to me, but it can't be expensive. Being able to purchase ready made floater frames that are easy to attach to paintings and look professional is essential! These frames come with a variety of sizes in rabbets and easily attach to paintings with 4 screws. The floater frame goes well with paintings that have a modern look. I wish there was a greater variety in colors to choose from, however.Kathy Truax
