Float and Floater Frames
Float (or floater) 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 gallery wrap canvases where the staples aren’t visible, these wood picture frames allow you to easily attach a canvas to the stretcher bars with screws. Available at your local hardware store, the screws should be long enough to screw into the frame without damaging your artwork (about 3/4” long).
Blick carries a variety of beautiful wood floater frames, including budget-friendly multi-packs. Since float frames are meant to be hung flush with the wall in most cases, they don’t always include hardware (although some do). Blick offers picture hanging supplies that can help you hang your float frames simply and easily.
Looking for another way to display photos, small artwork, and memorabilia in a unique way? A shadow box is a great solution that allows you to change out the contents as seasons, events, and your interests evolve.
