Building an Oval frame

Hi I’m restoring a photo that has an oval frame unfortunately most of the frame is damaged or missing.

Is it possible to build a new oval frame using this part of the old frame?

Re: Building an Oval frame

Jessie, You can replicate the frame or get pretty close. Draw an Oval shaped selection using the Marquee tool, then using the subtract option from the Options bar draw another oval selection inside the outer one and fill the resulting oval shape with a solid color. Add a layer style - Bevel Emboss. To do the inner most ring with the texture, just repeat the process to create an inner oval shape and add another layer style - also bevel / emboss but select the texture option and use one of the standard textures or make / add one of your own. If you want to make the frame look antique you could add scratches or rough it up in a number of ways.
Regards, Murray

Thanks Murray that works great. Is there a way of using the piece of frame I supplied to rebuild it?

There should be no real problem piecing together an oval shape from that segment IMO but the big difficulty will lie in adapting the lightning so perhaps you are better of creating one from scratch.

Thank you both, after experimenting a little I agree creating one from scratch is the way to go.

Jesse, you can use that piece of frame but it would be a lot of work and you would be better off by far just designing a new one, especially if all you have is that very small piece of the original.
