How to care for your new paper mosaic!
All artwork is sprayed with a UV-resistant acrylic coating that protects against harmful UV light rays and is moisture resistant. As a precaution to preserving your artwork for as long as possible, this information will provide tips on the best way to handle and care for paper artwork.
- The least amount of touching to the paper is ideal because of the salt and oils on human hands that can cause stains.
- High acidic and environments with chemicals can fade dyes, pigments and degrade the artwork.
- Keep in an environment that doesn’t have rapid fluctuations in extreme temperatures and humidity.
- High light exposure leads to fading and discoloration. Magazines are among the most susceptible to light damage and should be displayed in an area free from light sources that have direct, long term, bright light.
- Due to soot and dust deposits, the display of paper artwork in the vicinity of fireplaces should be avoided.
- (If on exposed canvas) A towel lightly dabbed with water or a soft brush can be used to rid dust that may accumulate. Extreme caution should be taken to not flake off any pieces of paper.
- No household cleaning products should be used, as the chemicals could damage the paper.
