These beautiful ready-made frames are constructed from tulipwood (so called because the flowers of the tree strongly resemble tulips). The wood is hard and smooth grained with long thin grey fibres.
A pale olive in colour, these frames can be left unfinished or can be coated in clear or lime wax. The tulip wood frames stain black easily and can be painted white or washed in a light colour. Whilst it is possible to give Jackson’s Ready-Made Frames‘mahogany’ finish, it is not recommend, as the resulting appearance is ‘fuzzy’ and the fine grey lines that gives the tulipwood its character are obscured.
All frames are supplied constructed, pre-drilled and counter sunk. Each frame comes with D-rings, cord and screws to secure a canvas. To achieve a neat finish, it is advisable to tape the rear of the frame once the canvas has been fitted. The frames are available in two depths, one for standard canvases and another for deep canvases.
- Rebate depth: 43mm
- Frames are cut 3mm over the size stated to allow for the canvas to fit
