Gesso Frame example

Gesso Frame example

I cleaned the middle part of this relief in a frame I picked up in Greenfield, Indiana. At first glance, it looks like wood, but it’s actually plaster that’s been stained. It’s my now-goal to learn how to repair this so that I can continue buying old, imperfect frames for cheap; I intend to use them to (finally) preserve family portraits of my Clay County relatives and hang them at home. It doesn’t make sense to put 100+-year-old images in brand new frames, and I just can’t afford the antiques that are in great shape. Updates to follow!
