Canvases are durable and should be mounted by stretching the canvas over wooden stretcher bars. Due to the durability of painting on canvas, glazing is not needed when being framed. After the canvas has been properly stretched it can be hung directly from the stretcher bars or framed in the following manner:
- Floater Frames - These frames give the illusion of dimensional depth by showing a gap between the edges of the stretched canvas and the floater frame. Floater frames lend themselves to minimal designs.
- Traditional Frames - These frames are meant to nestle close to the piece that you are framing; the moulding will overlap and cover the edges of the canvas. Typically wider moulding is used and is more versatile, allowing for linen liners and stacked frames to be used to create depth and allow for unique designs.
