A simple guide to creating your own custom quote frame


Posted 8th May

When it's done well, typographic art looks absolutely stunning

However, if, like us, you can struggle to write a shopping list neatly, this tutorial from Rust-Oleum could have the perfect solution for you...

You will need

Frame
Duster
Clean dry cloth
Rust-Oleum Leafing Pen – Gold
Paper design – Reverse printed

Directions

1. To begin, choose your design. This can be anything from a piece of typography in a magazine to a picture you’ve always been fond of; we’ve opted for a slogan we created on the computer and printed off on A4.

Tip: Make sure you reverse your chosen design. This means when you start tracing, the side you have drawn on will end up being on the back of the glass.

2. Take your chosen frame apart to get to the glass. We’ve gone for an A4 frame to fit our design.

3. Take a duster and a clean dry cloth to give the glass a wipe down and remove any dust.

4. Place the glass over the top of your design and position centrally.

5. Now take your Rust-Oleum Leafing Pen in Gold and begin to trace the design onto the glass, working from top to bottom. Once the first trace is dry, go over again to build up the colour.

6. Once fully dry place the glass back into the frame and secure.

7. Your custom frame is now ready to be proudly displayed on the wall or even in an arrangement on a table. All you have to do is wait for the first: “Where’d you get that then?”. Well…
