Care Instructions


for original artworks on metal

SUNLIGHT  Keep the artwork out of direct sunlight. While some artworks have a UV coating, that does not guarantee the colors from fading or the surface from cracking if exposed to bright sunlight for long periods of time.

CLEANING  Dust the surface with a clean soft cloth regularly. Do not use cleaning products or chemicals on unfinished wood surfaces. Use a 1-to-1 mix of white vinegar and water to clean the surface of the painting. Using a soft cloth, not a paper towel as they can leave fibers behind, make sure to remove all liquid from the surface. If there are any scratches to the coating, it will affect the metal underneath.

STORAGE  Do not lean anything against the artwork. Objects may not seem sharp, but they can still scratch the surface in an accident. Try not to lean artworks against one another when storing them. Separate them with a piece of cardboard to avoid damage. Do not cover artwork with plastic. It can trap humid air, which may cause mold to grow. Plastic directly touching the surface may leave marks behind. It is best to use fabric.

TRANSPORT  Wrap artwork well if you plan to transport it. Rough handling can damage the painting and the frame so pack it securely.

ENVIRONMENT  Try to avoid subjecting artwork to extreme changes in atmosphere. Avoid excessive dryness, humidity, heat or cold.

FRAME  I designed this series so that you would not need to have it framed.
