In July one of my tintypes was chosen to be in the annual ArtMelt Show in Baton Rouge, LA.
The piece “Father”, won an honorable mention and was sold by the end of the night.
I chose to frame the piece in a traditional black frame with an off white matte, however I had the tintype floated about a half of an inch off of the matting instead of set into it like a traditional photograph. This method allowed the piece to still retain its 3D qualities, the viewer could still look at it from the side and see the quality of the metal the image was created on.
Here are some images from the show!
