This black closed corner frame has been waxed to give is this beautiful finish.  A pewter slip was added which really enhanced the oil painting.

Any shape of moulding can be used  for closed corner frames, although the simpler shapes look the most effective.  Any paint finish and colour can be added giving you a huge range of options.

Traditional methods of applying gesso are used for this finish, as per the preperations for gilding.
