Cleaning & Maintaining your Artwork

The painting is best dusted with a light brush and can be cleaned with a moist rag if it sustains markings. Be careful not to damage the paint with textured pieces, as the textured paint can be brittle.

How To Handle Your Artwork

It is always best not to touch the artwork's surface, as the acid from the fingers will affect the longevity of the paint. So, when handling the artwork, it is recommended that you hold the inside top stretcher framing. Using a clean cloth can help. Be especially careful not to put any pressure on the cotton stretch itself.

NEVER rest anything against the painting's surface.

When moving your paintings around, hold them by their edges & store them vertically against something so that the back of the artwork takes the weight, with the bottom resting on a towel or folded sheet to prevent damage or chipping the frame or varnish or painting surface. Alternatively, lay them on their back on a flat surface.

It is essential not to put pressure on the cotton surface in any way to prevent the stretch from sagging.

Hanging your Artwork

 How you hang your canvas depends on your wall, the canvas location, and your preferences. For example, many modern houses have hollow cavity walls requiring special plastic screw plugs or toggle fixings. Solid brick walls need a different type of screw plug. You may wish to hang the canvas on two screws, using the top of the frame as an anchor, or you may want to use a picture wire and hooks, which come supplied with the artwork.
