A fillet (pronounced “fill-it”) is like a miniature frame that rests inside the regular moulding and can be used in many different ways to accentuate the image being framed.  The first two examples are simple fillet-frame combinations in which the fillet is in direct contact with the frame and the glass is resting behind the fillet.  The second pair of examples are a much more complex variation where two separate fillets are stacked on each other and then encased in the top mat.  The glass is then placed over the fillet-matboard construction and fit into the exterior frame.  The process can be time consuming, but the end result is fantastic.

…We are so awesome.

Don’t Forget the Fillet!
