What sort of filler you using to fill in canvas frame cracks?

9 months 2 weeks ago #629704 by Office Guy
A client of mine has some frames she picked up from me a few years ago and the corners are coming apart.  The frame company that I had ordered these from is no longer around.  

I'll need something that color matches easy (brown and dark brown).  Can you suggest something that works well?

Thanks!

I forget the brand, but Home Depot sells it and most frame shops.  That way you can bring the frame in and color match it.  Beats ordering something on Amazon and getting wrong color.

:agree:   i was going to say the same thing, going this route will insure you get as close of a color match

Frames shouldn't fall apart within a few years' time so I'd expect to replace instead of patching/repairing them. The company apparently made/sold inferior products and it seems like your responsibility as the photographer who provided them to try to find something of better quality for the client.
