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.

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
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

Wood Floater frames
I am very happy with the quality of these floater frames and will definitely place a reorder. The gold leaf has a quality look as compared to many others I have seen. I like that it has the black liner as it enhances the painting and gives it space. I also ordered the all black and very pleased with them as well.
I love these frames. There may be less expensive ones out there but the way these cradle the art makes them really easy to quickly screw the art in place. Others need spacers and are a hassle.
I wish they made a bigger frame
from Charlotte, NC
I use the 18" X 24" black floater frequently but wish they had a bigger size. I like large canvasses and don't want to mess with building a floater for a 48" X 72". I'm tempted but have never painted these frames. If I use black gesso, it just seems like too much black.On the other hand, I'm pleasantly surprised by how well a canvas goes into these frames. Very tight tolerances. I think my canvasses are called Blick Premier 1.5" but I'd have to check that.
Wood Floater Frame
I used the frame for an acrylic painting - the brushed gold showcased the painting nicely focusing the eye on the painting and not just the frame. Good value.
Nice frame! Good value!
from Bloomington, Indiana
These are nice, heavy duty, frames. Well constructed and the floater frames makes my wife's art look nice and pop off the canvas.
