How to make a sub-frame for pictures?
In previous articles touched on the subject of production compulsory for all artists of the goods - easel for drawing and painting. Including easels "Lear" and very comfortable easels "poppers". In continuation of our regular column we will tell you more about one important attribute of artists - stretcher.
What is a sub-frame?
Briefly about the production: production of wooden stretchers on the brackets we have been here for over ten years and during [
that time rose to their feet firmly on the market of products for artists (unlike our competitors, our services are not only limited to the sub-frame)
For those who have not yet experienced and beginners to the world of art and design, I will explain what a stretcher. All of us at least once in their lives were in an art gallery or seen pictures of friends? So then, what is fixed on the canvas (the picture itself) and is called the sub-frame, that is, rectangular design, gathered from the four sides of the dice dimensional (brusochkov).
Do not think that this design does not impose any requirements. Galvnym moisture content requirement is (usually is 8-10%). If raw material, the result will be lamentable - canvas "lead", and twirl it will lead to sagging of the picture and, as a consequence, the possibility of rupture of the canvas. Especially important to observe the humidity for large and extra large sizes!
When you select a sub-frame should also pay attention to the quality of the material. Knots, wane, cracks - will lead to rapid aging. And as a result - the picture completely lose its original appearance.
Assembly and integration of deaf stretchers.
Unlike modular, "deaf" stretchers for paintings made originally non-separable, making them the most robust when stretching the canvas. The assembly takes place on the machines for the manufacture of baguette frame with staples. When you add a special glue stretcher becomes final strength. The technology itself is very simple and inexpensive to use: cut corners at 45 degrees, then hard on the machine harvested and fixed braces on all four sides. For larger size put peppered rack (crosses, jumpers or single insert) for more stiffness. After that, the sub-frame is ready for any canvas stretching things somewhat.
Worth noting that the rail for the subframe we produce ourselves too and are therefore not dependent on intermediaries, and this is important in the formation of the final price of the product. We work only with pine.
