30 Aug 2010 Podcast 257 : Making a Gallery Wrap
Here’s a video for this week’s Podcast in which I show you how to make a gallery wrap with the Hahnemühle Pro Gallerie Wrap System.
NOTE: You can now view the embedded video on your iPad, thanks to a recent Vimeo update!
By the way, I didn’t include this in the video to keep it short, but after I created the wrap, to hang it, I added the following brackets and twine so that I could hang the wraps on regular hooks. These can be found at good craft stores and framing supply shops.
And here is my first wrap, hanging to the right of my workspace.
And here’s the second wrap, that I created during the video, hanging at the top of the stairs, outside my studio door.
(Excuse the weird light, it was almost dark when I shot this, without any lighting or flash. )
You can buy the Hahnemühle Pro Gallerie Wrap System from B&H following the following links.
I used Hahnemuhle Daguerre Canvas (400gsm) – 17″ Wide x 39′ roll canvas for my wraps this time.
For this wrap I used 13″ Stretcher Bars and 19″ Stretcher Bars, but there is a whole range of sizes available so you can mix and match to create a variety of frame sizes. I’m looking forward to doing a 20×32″ gallery wrap, when the 24″ Daguerre Canvas comes back into stock.
I also want to use the Hahnemuhle Protective Spray, but I can’t find anywhere that sells this in Japan and it can’t be shipped abroad from B&H, so I’m stuck for now. If anyone knows where I can get this in Japan, I’d really appreciate it if you’d drop me a line to let me know.
So, that’s it! I hope this has been of some use.
