How to take care of your art at home
As the art work in your house fills your space with positivity and colours, here are a 5 tips on how to preserve the lifespan of your obejt d’art and save it from any damages-
- Do not place in direct sunlight- Direct sunlight damages the protective top layer of varnish on the art work and starts to causing fading of the colour. Place your works in a naturally lit room without letting the sunlight fall directly on the art object
- Never use water to clean the artwork- Instead use a soft cloth and rub gently on the surface. You can also make a dough of white flour and gently rub it on the front and back of the canvas to clean it.
- Store in cotton sheets- When you store your artworks, don’t wrap them in plastic. Use cotton sheets instead to allow them to breathe
- Do not store in rolled form- Always stretch your paintings before you store them. In a rolled form the paint tends of damage and crack
- No DIYs!- Let your bronzes breathe and change colour overtime as a natural process. For your ceramics do not use soap or water. Clean them with soft sponge.
