How's & When's
Liners basically act on paintings or fabric art as
mats do on paper art.
They are used for 4 main reasons.
1). To add an accent color to the overall frame job (above liner's sign with blue).
2). To give the eye some "relief" between the art & the frame.
3). To add size and/or dimension to the finished piece.
4). To match existing artwork previously framed with liners.
Frames with liners are often followed by a "fillet",
the inner most portion of these designs.
a). bring out a certain color in the art or
b). re-introduce the frame's finish or texture before the art happens
You can also see fillets utilized on matting by going to the "FRAME / MAT & FILLET" section.

Below you will see some of the profiles (shapes) that are available with liners.
Most of these come "pre-covered" with White or Natural (beige) Linen, and ALL are able to be "custom hand-wrapped" in any one of a thousand plus fabrics.
