Care of Your
General: The most important detail to remember
is that direct sunlight will really accelerate fading and changes in the colour
of the pigment.
It’s recommended not to store paintings in a tight
roll for long periods of time as the paint might crack as it becomes more rigid
over time. Acrylic paints are sensitive to extremes of heat so it’s always
best to hang the painting in an area of the building / home where the
temperature is at its most stable.
Cleaning: Acrylic paintings can attract dust so if you want to clean an acrylic painting
yourself the recommended method is to brush the front and back of the painting
with a soft non abrasive cloth, removing any loose dirt. (Always test an
area before cleaning the whole painting). Using a damp clean sponge, wash
with clean water. Do not saturate the paint or canvas as this may cause
uneven shrinkage. Do not use any detergents as the ingredients contained
in detergents may break down the paint or cause any other irreversible
damage. Alcohol dissolves acrylic paint
over time, so be aware of sprays used in the home, for example many household
products contain alcohol.
Transport: It is best to use a core cylinder
to roll the canvas on to as this will help prevent the rolled canvas from
flattening down, the fatter the better. Lengths of plastic pipe can be
used. Do not use sheets of plastic or paper, especially tissue, between
layers of paintings. They can encourage mould if moisture is there or stick to a
tacky surface as in the case of plastic.
