wash line mounts
This special, handmade mounting is a combination of traditional English and French techniques.
The lines and wash are drawn/painted around the mount to compliment and balance
the colours in the picture, much care and subtlety is needed to create a good
wash/line mount.

Each mount is individually made for each particular picture.
The french binding is the inset deeper mount...
usually covered with a linen finish to compliment the colour in the picture.

With the change in fashions, the more ornate wash/lining has almost all been replaced by french binding,
to give a clean elegant finish that is often required for today's contemporary work.
The art and skill of a professional wash/liner is limited to more tradional work.
Most of the work we sell is removed from the old frame and mount, and replaced with a white or ivory french bound mounting
