I have a client that's interested in a tabernacle style frame for a recent painting. It's about 24 x 32 so a fairly large size. I've attached a screen shot which shows a gilded panel inside of the actual frame. She likes this concept so wondering if this could be made of 1/4" MDF out of one piece to eliminate potential separation. This piece would be gilded (budget says composition leaf at this time) over a brushed on primer/sealer. Still playing with the overall design of the rest of the frame so looking for inspiration wherever I can find it! Not interested in a lot of scrolls or carving (thank goodness) so my plan is to mill most of it, including a coved piece for the top -- maybe even some dentil molding as well. The over-all design doesn't need to be "period correct" but rather something that conveys the tabernacle feel in an updated way. Any thoughts or sources of information are appreciated.
