    No, the red guy was a Remarque done by the artist from whom I bought it direct a couple months after the show. The recent addition is the smoke boxes behind the picks, which Cam DeLeon helped me out with.

    I’m gonna break the rules for a second. These aren’t framed yet but I’ve finally got the space to start flattening them and I’m stoked to see them again. Now I’ need to save up the funds to get them both custom framed. I’ll take any suggestions you may have.

    Check out Wyman Framing in Tinley Park, I get all my stuff done there and they do phenomenal work. If you're not sure on what you want, they do a great job on advising patterns/mattes. I say splurge for the UV Museum glass; protects the print and allows you to view it without glare. 

    Also, they frame without mounting to backer board so it maintains the integrity and value of the print.

    Since we are on the topic of framing advice, it’s high time this received a proper framing. Haven’t been a big fan of the frame/mat combos I’ve seen in the past. Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!

    Maybe get a matt and load it up with stickers racing, car, oil, tires, vintage, some pj, tix stubs. As long as it won't touch or damage print. Unique and kick butt! Imo

    Someone on one of the PJ Facebook groups recently posted a picture of the Vegas N1 poster in a frame that they spray painted themselves. It was an affordable way to make the print pop more. I’m looking to do that for a Crowes poster I have but I wanted to know if they sandpapered the frame first or just put the spray paint on it as is. Of course I can’t fucking find the post anymore to ask. I’m hoping either that person posts here or someone here saw that too and knows where to find it. I have a spare frame since one I had shipped to me came with broken glass but I’d like more info ahead of time to avoid any potential issues. Can anyone help?

    A light sanding wouldn’t hurt. Helps the paint stick to the surface. Also I recommend using tremclad or rustoleum spray paint. Is it a wood frame?

    I never do.  But you might prime it first. 

    If you do sp, I would use like 000 or even steel wool.  Something very light.  I started painting frames years ago to add the extra color.  Works great.

    Never worked with that material before. If you’re not too attached to the frame I’d say go for it.

    It’s an inexpensive frame that I ended up getting for free because the glass was broken in shipping. Of course if it works I’ll have to swap it with another with the glass but that’s fine.
