Limed and painted frames for Tjili's art

Written by

We recently framed these amazing images from an artist called Tjili who was born in Cambodia with cerebral palsy and profound deafness. We used a painted and then limed oak profile to create this effect.

The use of oak allows the grain to remain open and is then exaggerated with a lime effect. This can be achieved with any colour paint and any oak profile. We have written about limed oak and hand painted effects on frames before. However the effects are so varied and can form such a perfect match for any picture they really are worth mentioning again. 

Here is the finished effect on two of Tjili's images. 

I really love the image of Baloo from one of my favourite films The Jungle Book ("Come on Baggy, get with the beat!"). The limed effect frame really suits the open brush style of Tjili's art. For more information about Tjili's art follow this link.
