Care


Dusting
Use a clean cloth or feather duster to dust the surface and tops of paintings gently a couple of times a year to prevent dust buildup.

Spills
Wipe immediately with a clean cloth and this will usually remove a liquid. The longer the spill remains the harder it is to remove.

Sunlight
Limit direct exposure to sunlight to maintain vibrancy and prevent yellowing and keep your painting looking like new for decades.

Heat and Cold 
Limit exposure to heat and cold to prevent cracking and warping. Your painting can be hung over a fireplace that is not the main heat source or that is kept on for extended periods of time. A mantle also blocks direct heat.

Handling
Use gloves for handling framed paintings, especially those with black frames. This prevents the oils from your hands transferring to the frame and leaving a mark.

Painted Frames
If a frame gets nicked during a move, apply a little wood filler and cover with paint. Contact me about frame paint colours.
