    Does anyone have a supplier for a linen covered fillet? I used to be able to get these but cannot find a source now.

    Framing Fabrics has a small 1/2" liner that you can order raw and primed or linen covered or seamless linen covered.
    It's not a fillet, but it's small.

    I've been using Framing Fabrics for over 20 years, mainly for blank primed liners in length that I cut and join and then wrap using their fabrics.
    I do my own linen wraps, mats and one piece liners without corner seams.
    Haven't wrapped a fillet, but the process would be the same.
    Just use any fillet. cut and join it and wrap with fabric.

    Here is a picture and a link to Framing Fabrics...

    Just another thought, Rise.
    If you have the equipment to do it, you could cut the back off the BV02 1/2" liner from Framing Fabrics and make it into a fillet.
    Watch your fingers if you do this.;):eek:
    We sometimes will modify profiles to fit a design plan.

    I have wrapped fillets in the past - for smaller projects - it's a pain....and then a company (Frame Arts) started selling them - it was wonderful! Don't know why more don't do this - they also did suede-wrapped fillets - and I have some gorgeous jobs that were done with those....

    You can wrap liners, frames, and fillets using fabrics and top-paper stripped from matboards, including suede, but it would be best to use a thin fabric or paper, because it would conform better to the small shapes.

    I used to use starch paste and one of the several fabric glues for wrapping, but now I use ATG Turbo from Frame Specialties. It dries very quickly and has a high solids content, so you can paint it on, and then activate the bond using heat from a rice bag warmed in the microwave. Or, for flat surfaces, a tacking iron works well.
