Frame-like appearance caused by higher coating thickness on the edges of the coated object. This is due to the fact that there is more interface on the edges, therefore evaporation occurs faster on the edges. Since solvents have lower surface tension values than the rest of the paint formulation, surface tension of the remaining wet film is higher at edges, and consequently, paint accumulation occurs on these parts.
