Custom Frames

If you don’t know exactly what type of frame you’re looking for, we can assist you with educated recommendations and advice. Our years of experience and education enable our staff to recommend designs or period style frames appropriate to your artwork. At Dry Creek Gold Leaf, we have the knowledge and experience to present your artwork in its very best light.

Frame Design & Fabrication

Whether you’re framing an antique portrait or a modern landscape, we can create the perfect frame for your artwork.  We have on display many hand crafted moulding samples-with styles ranging from old-world elegance to the clean lines of contemporary design-and are able to create custom designs, if desired.  Hand-carved frames are our specialty.  Taos, Spanish Colonial, Arts & Crafts, and Florentine are a few of our sample carves.  We are also able to create frame styles with cast ornaments.  Our large selection includes casts of our own design, as well as those from antique frames.  All of our frames have finished corners, with no visible corner joints.   Our attention to detail and dedication to quality are visible in every frame we make.

Every frame is hand-finished using time-honored techniques.  We have a variety of finishes to choose from including water-gilded karat gold leaf, gold or silver metal leaf, painted or stained, and several faux examples.  All of our customized finishes allow for the subtle toning, antiquing, and creation of a patina, which can enhance the palette of and add depth and beauty to your artwork.


We offer picture and mirror frame preservation and restoration services. We’ve been in the frame restoration business for more than 15 years and, although you won’t be able to spot our work, frames we have restored hang in many museums and corporate and private collections.  We don’t perform art restoration, instead we rely on our network of trusted experts who we’ve worked with for many years.  Check out our professional network art conservationists

Our emphasis is on the preservation of your frame, its history, its patina and its value, both intrinsic and personal.  We employ a “conservation” approach in our restoration-repairing and refinishing only damaged areas, leaving as much original as is possible.  Our services include recasting and re-carving to repair missing ornaments, structural, surface and finish repairs.
