Curved V-Grooves that is
As a framer, and I'm sure most framers will agree with me here, I love a good corner. Most of my days are consumed with squares, rectangles, and angle cuts. Straight lines are one of the most important parts of a framers job.
But just because we normally walk a straight line, doesn't mean we don't appreciate a set of good curves.
Below you will find a video of our wonderful Wizard (a CMC mat cutter) who we have named Whitney, cutting us a custom mat. This mat features a traditional rectangle opening, but we are mixing it up a bit by adding two curved V-Grooves.
The photograph we are using was captured by photographer Leisel Schultze, of Lili Photography. You can check out her other work here: https://www.facebook.com/LiliPotography
The smooth curves of this car are enhanced by mimicking their shape with this type of V-Groove.
So, the next time you are wanting to get something matted and framed, keep in mind, framers are also really good at thinking outside of the box ;)
Tell us what you think! and be on the lookout for the finished product, we will post this again once it is fully framed!
