Bespoke washline mounts

Bespoke Mount Lines and Washes

Bespoke washline mounts

Washline mounts are traditionally used with watercolour paintings, drawn in hand and using carefully chosen colours to balance and enhance the artwork. The choice of colour and design is unlimited allowing us to perfectly compliment the artwork. 

The cross-hinged ruling pen holds ink and slowly releases it as it is drawn. Any combination of lines can be used but they are normally finished with a washline which is the colour applied between two lines.

The Possibilities are endless

Our Guild Certified framers offer free framing consultations to discuss all the possible Line and wash options with you and find the perfect colour and design combination for your Artwork.

Possible combinations include…  

  • Ink Lines in any colour
  • Ink Lines with a watercolour wash in any colour
  • Watercolour lines in any colour
  • Gold Leaf Lines or decorations
  • Gold Lines 
  • Gold Lines with a watercolour wash in any colour


It takes a lot of practice and a steady hand to create the perfect finish however it is worth the patience when you see the finished result!

Bespoke Picture Framing at Ironbridge Fine Arts

Sarah Morris Advanced GCF (APF) talks about our Bespoke Picture Framing Services… 
“As Guild Certified Picture Framers we know the importance of framing Artwork correctly; to both beautifully present the artwork and protect it for years to come. Consequently, we want to help our customers make informed decisions and set the highest standard for Framing, Giclee Printing, and Scanning. 

Above all, we absolutely love the work that we do which is evident when you walk into the Gallery and see our beautiful space filled with inspiration and passion.

We are continuously enthralled with the variety of Artwork that comes through our Gallery doors. In recent years we have been lucky enough to work on everything from Picassos and Rembrandts, Warhols and Emin’s through to Flags Flown in Space, family heirlooms, baby’s first handprints, and wedding Photographs.

Every job no matter how large or small is treated with the utmost care and attention, and with over 3000 different moldings, specialist glazing, and the fine Art Trade Guilds framing levels we have something for every style of Artwork, personal taste, and budget. Framing Artwork is a truly brilliant experience and we look forward to sharing it with you.”

Our Family run business has been located in the Ironbridge Gorge for over 15 years. Sisters Jenny Gunning and Sarah Morris have grown the business with their passion for making Printmaking, Art, and Framing and especially making it accessible for all.
