For TwoStick installation, yes! Well...you do have to have a nail in the wall (or something) upon which to hang the frame. And you need to have art that is mostly flat...but yes! But, hey, give yourself five! And BTW, our traditional frames don't take much longer.
Let's face it. Painting by numbers has another, shorter name--coloring. No matter how you do it...even after you apply multiple coats to keep the numbers from peaking through...you still have something that screams "I AM A COLLECTION OF PAINT PUDDLES!" (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
With a TwoStick Shadows paint kit, If you paint directly on the shadows and closely mimic the guide images, you will get as good or better results much more quickly.
BUT...if you want to work on your artist skills such as mixing paint, blending colors, dry brushing, wet on wet, stippling, etc., then Shadows kits are far more useful. And when you finish, your work will confidently proclaim "I am a PAINTING!"
Shadows kits have art teacher approved instructions and short accompanying videos to help you develop your skills!
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! But do watch the video a couple of times first.
We are proud to print our own creations and licensed art from amazing artists on our high end Giclée quality printers.
Most of our prints and all of our Shadows are printed on a woven polyester 1:1 weave 15mil 210gsm canvas. The others are on a heavy raw cotton canvas. The canvas is not stretched on stretcher bars; it is in sheet form and ready to put in a frame. Synthetic canvas will not stretch or shrink based on the humidity.
Our art prints are sprayed with a long lasting UV protective coating.
Most people take the width of their art and add one inch. That way, there will be 1/2 inch sticking out from each side. So an 18"x 24" poster hung vertically would require a 19" TwoStick.
Yes. Remove the sawtooth hanger from the TopStick. (By unscrewing two screws.) Then use Command Strips (tm) on one or both of the sticks.
Absolutely! To remove a clip, just press down lightly on it and pivot the clip until it is perpendicular to the stick. In other words, just reverse the procedure you used to install the art. This is why you should leave the hole end of the clip protruding from the stick at installation.
All poster rail systems leave the print exposed. Our customers choose TwoSticks because they like the look, the ease of changing out art, and the value they represent.
As professional framers, we are very knowledgable regarding archival framing. Doing it right is expensive and requires glass that can cost as much as an entire TwoStick frame!
Truthfully, most modern inks are long lasting in most situations. We wouldn't use a TwoStick to frame newspaper pages, as they are notoriously vulnerable to sun fading.
