Double-glass or double-acrylic frame

The great thing about the double-glass or double-acrylic framing method is that it lets you enjoy your artwork in its entirety, both front and back, even when framed up. Some people employ this method for practical purposes. Others enjoy this method of framing purely for its contemporary and unconventional look. With a double-glazing frame, the artwork is sandwiched in the middle of two pieces of glazing, giving it the illusion of floating mid-air.

Mounting for double-glazing frame

As Singapore has a humid climate, we would advise to include spacers or a small matboard trim so that the glass will not be resting directly on the front of your artwork. This may prevent the artwork from adhering to the glass over time.

If your priority is aesthetics, it is also possible to frame without the use of matboards to achieve a cleaner and more contemporary look.

Framing inspiration

This is a good framing method for two-sided maps, artworks with artist handwritten notes at the back, currency notes and coins, Egyptian papyrus and other artworks with charming unfinished deckled edges.
