Protect your paintings.
Avoid or limit direct sunlight.
Exposure to intense sunlight may deplete the color of just about everything, including your new favorite artwork. Avoid hanging your pictures anywhere they will be exposed to direct sunlight.
Know when to use plexiglass rather than glass.
What if you specifically want to hang the perfect picture in your sunny room? If you do not want the sun to dictate your design decisions, just make sure your picture is framed with UV protection instead of glass. In fact, it is lighter than the glass and will protect your art from fading or yellowing in direct sunlight.
Pay attention to humidity.
The amount of water in the air can have a huge impact on the overall health of your picture. Make sure you monitor the level of humidity in your home and ideally save up to about 55%. (You can track the humidity of your home with a simple hydrometer.)
Watch your hands.
Always avoid direct touching your pictures or acrylic framing surfaces without wearing cotton gloves. If you do, you risk damaging them by exposing fingerprints and natural oils.
Our paintings are sprayed with a special spray that protects them, but it’s good to have one in mind.
If you have a unique picture that is not behind glass or acrylic, do not use any cleansers or solvents to clean the picture … Instead, use a dust brush.
Keep art in a cool, dry and dark place.
The best way to avoid damage from sunlight, humidity and temperature fluctuations is to keep your art cool, dry and dark.
