The final results of a double-sided picture frame that we custom gilded with 22K gold leaf for this Pearl Jam silkscreen


We recently had the honor of giving this Pearl Jam silkscreen a special double-sided frame to show both sides of the artwork. 


For any artworks with signatures, personal notes, or features on both sides of the artwork that our clients would like visible, a double-sided frame can be an excellent option to offer the ability of keeping both sides visible for an extra special reveal.

We loved being able to enhance and protect both sides sides of this Pearl Jam silkscreen with a custom gilded double-sided picture frame

To create this custom picture frame, we used a natural maple frame with closed corners and natural splines. The designing details include quattro red clay with wood spacers and a 22 K yellow gold leaf finish.

The front layer of this piece is glazed with museum glass for full UV protection and a barrier to prevent colors fading due to sun damage, dust and environmental effects over time.

Every detail counts: Your artwork will be in trusted hands with the highest quality 100% Archival Picture Framing in NYC, New Haven and Miami


To create this custom picture frame for this Mr. Brainwash piece, we floated the artwork using Japanese paper and rice paste Float mounting techniques, which ensures the stability of the work will endure beautifully over time. For custom framing a larger artwork such as this one by Mr. Brainwash, three different types of hinging were used including pull through and V-hinging to allow the raw edges of the artwork to appear floating on mattboard inside a closed corner shadowbox frame.


As the artwork was painted with layers of collage, mixed media, cartoons and cardboard, our client wanted to see the piece floated, where the edges of the artwork are exposed for a beautiful and clean finish. Check out our process to create this framing finish using Japanese rice paper mounting techniques!
