Welcome to dickblick
These unique 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 (not included).
Blick is pleased to offer six color options in a variety of popular sizes to accommodate 3/4", 7/8", 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.
These beautiful frames in gold leaf are finished with the "Old World" technique of showing hand leafing lines between each individual leaf that reveals a thin black separation line.
Choose Blick 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.

Black soot issue
from Phoenixville, PA
I purchased 12 of these floater frames for my encaustic work on boards. The frames are a great deal. One issue is that when unwrapped, lots of black soot of some type transfers to your hands and tabletop. Luckily my artwork was not ruined as the soot could be wiped off. If my work was watercolor or pastel, this might have ruined it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Eugene OR
Very nice looking frame, simple and clean, and perfect for giving my portraits a finished, professional look. I wish the manufacturer had included some hardware in the package... finishing up the framing became a DIY project... I had to go to the hardware store to buy four relatively expensive little screws to attach the painting to the frame, and then also had to buy some framing hardware to create a hanger. After some runaround on my part the frames look really nice.
Floater Frame shows off stretched canvas with painted edges
from Lake City, FL
Had to chisel out the inside a bit for the stretched frame canvas to fit in properly.
I love how the floater frame shows off my art
from pecan plantation, granbury, texas
Love how it shows off my art. The gold leaf is very fragil
from Houston, Texas
I did some paintings that are acrylic on paper, and they have nice nuanced colors and textures that would not be visible if they were framed under glass or plexiglass. I bought cradled wood panels the same size as the paintings, mounted them, and framed them with these floater frames. The result is really beautiful and I feel proud to present my work framed this way.

I ordered a floater frame that arrived damaged. Blick's customer service replaced the frame and over-nigted the replacement to me gratis. Thanks for helping me out of a jam and your excellent service.Arlene Earhart
These were nice.
from New Jersey
Paint was a bit smudged in some areas otherwise I Would have rated them a five star. I think you might have a problem using these frames for high priced art as the frames paint job is not perfect.
