Buying and collecting artwork is an art but maintaining it also is an art. People like to buy artwork to display in their workplaces and homes. Artwork enhances the décor of the room as well as adds personality to the room. Artwork that you display on your walls or mantles needs to be taken care of. Many people don’t realize there is the importance of the artwork to be maintained properly as with time, these original art pieces can succumb to wear and tear, and you must preserve them. For that, you must know how you can properly maintain them.
Your paintings will last longer if you take care of small little things such as the tips below:
Paintings need to be hand in or stored away from the sunlight. In case there is a window nearby, ensure it doesn’t directly face the painting. In case you have a window opposite, and there is sunlight coming directly, keep the curtain drawn during the day so sunlight doesn’t damage the artwork.
In case you have a light above your painting, it can lead to constant exposure to heat that is not good. Make sure your light above the painting is not on all the time. The heat will make the frame’s wood dry over time, and it will crack.
Exposure to humidity to painting is too much. It will also cause the growth of fungus to avoid it.
If you like to shuffle the paintings around in your home, move them with care.
The oil painting must be handled by the frames only.
Never touch the painting surface.
Make sure your hands are clean.
For cleaning a paint, proper technique and solution are needed which you must use and do it right.
