How do I faux frame 5d gem paintings?

LorraineGkDeb K


I've been doing a lot of DIY 5d gem paintings. They are all odd sizes. I don't have a lot of money and can't afford to have them framed. Any ideas on what I can do to make it look like frames. I was thinking about using washi tape. To make a faux frame around the edges. Any help is appreciated.

    You might be able to find old wood frames at local thrift stores. Or old pictures in frames and you can just use the frame. Many times you can pick up old frames for less than a dollar. Sometimes they even give them away.

    i go to GoodWill, Thrift, ...they have lots of manufactured “paintings” that have great frames! I remove the “painting” and insert mine! Sometimes it takes awhile to find the look I want or the size. If the color isn’t right, pull out the trusty spray paint!
