3 Easy Ways to Hang Your Wall Arts Without Damaging The Wall

Ray Beh, Founder | Frambie

With years of experience working in Frambie, I noticed that there are questions being asked for many times. For instance:

i. How to hang the frames on wall?

ii. Can you recommend someone to hang the frames for us?

iii. It seems like heavy, is it stable to hang it on wall?

Hanging the photo frame, canvas print or art painting could be a hassle process for first-timer or someone doesn’t do this always. It is easy for wooden wall, but how about concrete wall? Typically, people would think they need an impact drill to drill a hole the wall and install a thick screw on it for hanging the framed art, and for those who don’t own an impact drill, it is like a nightmare for them. Of course, you can find someone to do it, but it would cost you some money and times dealing with the right handy man.

If you are facing this picture-hanging challenge, I would like to share with you 3 hassle-free ways to hang your framed art or canvas, and no impact drill required during the process.

 

1. 3M Command™ Picture Hanging Strips

This is a great innovation created by 3M to protect your wall. There is no nail and screw required, and using 3M Command picture hanging strips saved your time in drilling the wall. The picture hanging strips come in small, medium and large sizes. Each of them can be used for hanging the framed art in various weights. The large version can hang up to 6kg. The way to use it is very easy too, even a kid know how to do it too.

The 3M Command™ Picture Hanging Strips are usually available in high-end hardware store like Ace Hardware, or you can also buy the Picture Hanging Strips from our online store. The only disadvantage is it is quite costly compared to wall hook and screw.

2. Traceless Hook Air (New Version)

If you ordered our products before, I believe that traceless hook is not something strange for you. Traceless wall hook doesn’t require drilling to install. You only need a hammer to hammer the pin-nail to the wall easily. Each small pin-nail has only less than 1mm diameter. Therefore, when you need to remove it from the wall in the future, it is quite easy to touch up the wall.

In year 2017, we have a new version of traceless hook, called as Traceless Hook Air which use only one pin-nail. If it is installed on the concrete wall, one hook can hold up to 3kg and 2.5kg for wooden wall. For me, the best feature of this new version is the removal part. When you don’t need it one day, you can simply remove the hook and hammer the pin-nail into the wall completely. It is super easy to cover the 1mm pin-nail surface on the wall and it might be unnoticed too if the wall is using dark color paint.

This hook was manufactured by our partner in oversea. I think it is not available in hardware shop in Malaysia at the moment, but you can still get it online from us – Frambie’s Accessory Category.

 

3. Standing on Cupboard, Wall Shelf or Picture Ledge

I believe that there are cupboard and wall shelf in your home and office. They are no strange thing for today’s interior too. For the large frame (above A3 size), you can consider place it on the the existing cupboard, wall shelf or picture ledge. This method doesn’t require any hook and screw and you just need to make sure it stands firmly. You may use blu-tack or Faber-Castell Tack-It, known as rubber material pressure-sensitive adhesive, attaching it to the bottom of the frame to avoid the slippery surface.

It is widely available, normally in stationary store, book store like Popular, hardware store and hypermarket like Tesco.

A single framed art standing on the shelf would be boring sometimes and you may consider adding some small decoration besides it. Here are some ideas for you:

Whether you are home-owner, interior designer, artist, moving to new office, contractor or a friend who want to help other to showcase their artworks, I hope these guides can help you. If you have any question, problem or suggestion in display your photo frame, your canvas print or your wall art, feel free to ask me too.

3 Steps to Create Stunning Abstract Wall Art at Home

Ray Beh, Founder | Frambie

Always wanted to create a simple yet stunning wall art? Sometimes you don’t have to print and you can always do it yourself without huge expense. This article will be showing you how to create a beautiful abstract wall art for your living room, kitchen, or bedroom by using only 4 simple tools. Here are the tools you’ll need;

  1. Blank Canvas
  2. Adhesive Tape (0.5 – 1cm)
  3. Oil Paint
  4. Paintbrush

Step 1: Working Space & Taping

First, lay down your canvas on a flat surface. The size of the canvas can vary depending on the space of your wall or the size of the wall art you wish to create. Then, randomly tie the adhesive tape on the canvas. There is no specific shape or design needed to create an abstract wall decoration. Make sure the adhesive tape is pressed firmly against your canvas. This is important for creating the lines in the painting.

 

Step 2: Paint, Paint, Paint

Once finished applying adhesive tape, you’ll be able to produce a randomized patterns of strings on your canvas. Here comes the most difficult part: painting. Before painting, make sure the surface of the canvas is clean and smooth without any sands on it. Otherwise, the color may turn out uneven. By using your paintbrush, gently paint all over the canvas with the desired color. Make sure you are clear with the colors and the space to paint too.

After that, you may put the canvas under the sun for an hour to allow it to dry. Again, please make sure that the surface is free from any sand or gravel as the paint is still wet.

 

Step 3: Remove The Tape

Finally, detach the adhesive tape from your canvas. You’ll be able to see the beautiful patterns contrasting the color of your paint. Add a hook at the back of your canvas and hang it on the wall to showcase your beautifully created wall décor.

Extra Tips

i. This tutorial was created for interior with red color scheme. You can change the color of the paint based on the interior color scheme you use. If your room is using blue color as main color, you may consider using blue color paint, so that it match to the color scheme and bring out the best visual sensation.

ii. Make sure the adhesive tape is strong enough to cover the canvas surface. I would recommend using high concentration any oil paint to avoid the liquid flowing into inside the taping area.

iii. Your canvas is white. Therefore, you should choose medium to dark color for painting. The contract between the line and painting area will make the artwork more stunning.
