Framing "Dad's Army"

I’ve just spent the better part of three days framing ten works on paper (my Dad’s Army series - see the post dated May 22nd). I ordered most of the components necessary for creating shadow box frames so you might think it would take me a day maximum. That’s what I thought too. But the required precision and cleanliness was time consuming and tedious. I began to understand why framing costs so much. But the final pieces look great!

Setting up my tables with all the components and artwork.

Lining them up - I still have to seal the backing and wire the frames.

On the wall.
