If ever a picture frame could make you feel the texture and emotion of a piece of art, this is it. Studio Shop framer Micah Paul created this very custom picture frame for an upcoming picture framing competition, January, 2015 in Las Vegas.
Micah started with this Asian themed artwork by Leslie Ditto and chose to emphasize some of its patterns with frame elements of teeth, fish scales and dragon skin.
The two outer mouldings are a mother of pearl product made with capiz shells. The fabric mat is covered with a very cool fabric textured like lizard skin and called Komodo Dragon. The finishing touch consists of the metal studs on the fabric mat which echo the tooth motif in the artwork.
This frame is now on display at The Studio Shop and we're confident that it will wow the judges in the upcoming competition.
