CARE GUIDELINES

Installation

If you examine your painting closely, you will notice that the piece has beautiful depth to it. The artwork will look it’s best when hung in a well-lit space. For dimly lit spaces, I advise installing a picture/spot light above the artwork so that it can live up to it’s full potential.

 

Framing

Framing is optional since I take special care in finishing the edges of my paintings to give them a sleek and streamlined look. Should you decide to frame your work, I recommend using only a floater frame. Be sure to tell your framer to take special care when framing the work, so as not to scratch the surface of the resin. 

 

Hanging

It is very important to use weight-appropriate mounting hardware when hanging your artwork. Do not hang heavy artwork by its frame –the weight of the painting will damage it over time.

Paintings that weigh less than 5 lbs may be hung from a screw/hook, with or without picture wire.

Paintings that weigh 5 – 10 lbs should be hung with picture wire, and two weight appropriate screws/hooks so that the weight is evenly distributed.

Paintings that weigh more than 10 lbs should be hung with heavy-duty picture wire, and two heavy-duty screws/hooks so that the weight is evenly distributed. Additionally, you may also drill two keyholes into the cradle behind the painting. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions.

 

Care

The surface of the resin is durable, however it requires a little bit of maintenance to maintain it’s brilliant finish.

If you notice any dust settling on the painting, I recommend using a clean Swiffer duster, or microfiber cloth to gently wipe of any dust that has accumulated on the surface of the resin.

When handling the painting, wear gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints on the resin. If you notice any fingerprints or smudges, you may occasionally use Windex to clean it off. Spray a microfiber cloth with Windex and gently wipe down the surface of the painting, focusing on areas that may be smudged. You may use the soft microfiber cloth to very lightly buff the surface of the painting to restore its shine.

Do NOT place the painting in intense, direct sunlight or it will yellow over time.

Do NOT let the surface of the painting come into contact with bubble wrap, cling film, cardboard or any other type of acidic papers and plastics. The acid content in those materials will quickly stain the surface of the painting. Only use acid free paper to protect the surface of your painting.

 

Contact

Each and every single work of mine is a labor of love, and I love seeing my pieces in their new homes. I would love it if you could send me a picture of your new piece once it has been hung.
