To best showcase a photograph or artwork, it is paramount that the hanging wire be firmly secured to the back of the piece. Although relatively effortless, it is essential that this step be performed correctly to ensure the image hangs in balance and remains safely attached to the wall.
These are the essential requirements:
Craft a portion of wire approximately twice the breadth of your framework. Subsequently, using needle-nose pliers, shape the ends of the cable so that they’re rounded instead of sharp.
Insert the wire approximately one inch from the crown of the frame’s hind side. Make sure to position it symmetrically, creating a level balance.
With a precise grip using needle-nose pliers, carefully twist the wire around itself multiple times to ensure an unbeatable binding of the wire to the frame.
Trim away any supernumerary wiring with a pair of scissors.
Securely affix your artwork to the wall by hammering a nail or screw. Ensure that the wire is draped tautly to deter it from drooping and damaging the picture’s composition.
