    We have a customer looking for a gold floater with a square face in the neighborhood of 2" wide by maybe 2 1/4 in total depth. They had a picture of it on their phone, so it's out there somewhere. I'll be darned if I can find it though.

    Any leads?

    You can make any suitable moulding into a floater by mounting the painting on a backing that is a biit larger than the canvas all the way around, and framing it with moulding and spacers to recess the backing so the face of the canvas is at your desired level. It's like a shadowbox with no glass.
    :cool: Rick

    That's a good suggestion, Rick. We've done that in the past and may end up doing it this time. We also thought of putting a gold cap over a black floater. We're just trying to get as close to matching what they saw as possible.

    Thanks Kyle. They have a profile that may be close enough.
