The frame stripe profile is the frame silhouette, visible once you cut the frames accross. According to the profile, the frames can be divided in to classical ones, reverse ones and flat ones.
The profile of a classical style creates a perspective to the inside effect of the painting and kind of allows to enter the painting. The reverse profile works on the contrary, it kind of takes out the plot of the painting. The frame stripes can be wooden, metal and plastic. Frames can me made of these materials and applied to any style.
