6x8 Floater frames for panels?

(Leslie Piercy) #1

Anyone know of a place to purchase 6x8 floater frames for panels?

Or does anyone have info on how to make them?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

I have been using Blick floater frames. I looked briefly and the smallest size I saw was 8" x 8". Here’s a link: https://www.dickblick.com/products/blick-wood-floater-frames/

Here’s a link to pictureframes.com where you can get custom size frames, including floater frames:

Hope this helps.

I have ordered 6x8, 5x7, and 6x6 floater frames from WebPictureFrames.com and am very pleased with them. Good prices, well made products and beautifully packaged to ship without damage! They also have other framing supplies such as stainless steel wire. Here is the link to their floater frames page.

These small frames come with sawtooth hangers, but not installed, which I prefer, as I like wire better. I can always add the sawtooth if a client requests such.

You can also float a 6x6 panel in an 8x8 or larger frame by mounting it to black foam core (or suede, as shown in this example from Julie Ford Oliver on her blog.

Thanks, Connie. This looks like a great idea, too.
