Enamel pins, patches and flair have made such a massive comeback that walking down the street can be a major 80's throwback. This framing customer was way ahead of the trend with his ultimate collection of enamel pins dating back years!
The consultation process for a piece like this can be extensive. Collaborating and laying out two well-balanced, vertical pieces with appropriate spacing and color between each pin is essential. When finally the arrangement is settled, we take photographs to capture and recreate placement exactly.
We chose a gray matboard to contrast the pins and used a double mat to strengthen any angular qualities in the piece. After the mat is cut, we punctured each pin through the backing so they could lay perfectly flat.
A classic matte black frame finishes off the look beautifully. The end result is a colorful masterpiece, with subdued tones keepin' it classy. Anyone have a pin collection that could contend with this one? Didn't think so. #pingame
