Storage & Display

Framing behind glass provides the ultimate protection for your work. Minimize frequency of direct contact and exposure of acrylics to elevated temperature, especially in combination with dusty conditions; such areas may be near hot air inlets, in direct sunlight or attics. Minimize exposure of watercolour paper to direct sunlight or moisture.


Display drawings in the cleanest, lowest traffic areas possible. Vacuum or mop these areas, rather than sweeping, to minimize airborne dusts.
