frame it in colour
a quick and simple frame hack from fotoron to bring out colours of your photos or wall art.
“i had some prints that i wanted to frame inexpensively. the ribba frames were great, but the matte boards, (like most of the matte boards provided with ikea frames) are not true white. the off-white/cream color doesn’t work for most images in my opinion, photographic or otherwise. i was inspired to paint the mattes with basic acrylic paint, which the boards took very well. a simple fix, which i think turned out well.”
