Hand-colored Bevel for an Old Map

September 23, 2013

france-map-1618-hand color bevel



A map of France from 1618, which shows the our clients hometown. It was given to her by a dear friend. The close up shows the hand colored bevel which I painted for her because we both thought a normal white bevel would be too strong with the artwork. It is a nice touch and with a steady hand, it is not terribly difficult to do. We used a brown/grey wash to which is the same color as the lines in the map. #hand colored bevel mat  #custom framing EAGAN #frame map
