I sketched this out and thought it would be an ultra atomic design for a frame. Today with the help of my step-father Dave we finished building it.
When we purchased the panther print off of Craigslist I needed an ultra cool frame to put it in. I figured I would just wait till a Carlo frame was available to put it in but then I got to thinking why don’t I just design one. From a previous post I had glued the boards together and sketched out the design. Today we cut the frame out and router-ed the edges on both sides of the frame to make them round.
Yep, that's my step-dad Dave giving me a hard time.... right back at ya buddy! The frame is all cut out now and needs to be sanded.
As you can see all the corners are rounded and it is really starting to look like something.
This shows you what I am going for.
The next step is to apply paint. I wanted to use black and a retro green color that works well with the print.
I used a small roller to get a more uniform finish. I plan to break up the colors.
Now it just needs to dry.
Ta da! Here it is. I still need to get a piece of glass. I also need to add a pair of ceramic stars I got from my friend Frank. They are off of a Moss lamp.
This frame is ridiculous. It is soo atomic. I have my eye on another print to go in the matching frame I still have to make. I am really pleased with the way this turned out.
