Tray frames

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A tray frame or Floater Frame, is where the canvas is set within the frame but with a gap visible between the edge of the canvas and the inside of the frame. The gap between the edge of the frame and canvas can vary depending on the style of the work and depth of the canvas. When a large gap is shown, say 100mm, this is usually referred to as a floater frame. A tray frame would have a normal gap of about 10 to 15mm from the edge of canvas to the inside of the frame.

It is possible to make a tray frame from practically any kind of moulding and then hand finished.
