The rich canvas finish of your Masters Touch portrait is unmistakable.

Your portrait is created with fade-resistant archival inks, ensuring heirloom longevity.
4. Beautifully Finished Gold-Leaf Frames
Many so-called custom frames are simply 'chop and join' - premade frame sticks that consist of moulding pieces. The result is a flat generic finish with a visible line in the corners of the frame. A Masters Touch frame however, is built here in the United States by master craftsmen, in the old-fashioned artisan tradition. Each frame takes approximately 6 weeks to build from scratch, and are beautiful furniture-quality finished corner frames with a gold leaf finish. Decorative leafs are added to each corner to further add beauty and detail. Individuals who are connoisseurs of art wil immediately recognize your attention to detail in framing your portrait. Frames included at no additional charge on 30" and larger Masters Touch Portraits.
5. 22 Karat Gold Hand Engraved Nameplates
A 22 kt. gold nameplate is like a beautiful piece of jewelry for your frame, and one is included with each frame that we complete. This prestigious detail provides a finishing touch of authenticity to your portrait.
6. Extreme Protection
Though protective lacquer is applied throughout the creation of your portrait, when all artistry is done, a minimum of four more layers is administered. This step goes the extra mile in providing necessary UV protection as well as to help guard the portrait from damages caused by external sources. You may occasionally wish to clean your portrait with Windex and a soft cotton cloth. Note: Never try this on any portrait that is not protected like a Masters Touch portrait.
