I recently got a few new additions to my poster wall that I needed to build frames for. I wanted the style to match the larger frames I had purchased for my other posters, so they ended up being pretty easy to make. The one new thing I did was follow a suggestion a good friend gave me some time back for wood filler. I’d never been happy with the various brands I tried so he recommended just mixing glue and sawdust from the wood I was using to the consistency I wanted. I gotta say, I really like how easy it was to get just what I was looking for and the end results.

I finally got around to framing the two posters I bought at the Mondo Disney show a few months back. Michaels had a deal this weekend that I couldn’t pass up. The 20,000 Leagues poster by Martin Ansin is an odd size (12″ x 36″) and I was planning to just make custom frames for both. Instead, I bought two of the 24″ x 36″ frames, surgically separated one of the sides, cut the top and bottom down (and the backing board), and put it all seamlessly back together. I had already purchased two pieces of glass that switched out with the plastic the frames came with. The Rocketeer poster is by Cesar Moreno.
That show had a ton of amazing posters, but these two were my favorites and I had to get them. They look pretty sweet on the wall.
