About this artwork:
Pastel is the most permanent of all media when applied to conservation ground and properly framed. Pastel has no liquid binder that may cause it to oxidize with the passage of time as oftentimes happens with other media.
Pastel paintings are raw pigments suspended on the surface - or, ’tooth’ - of the paper support. Thereby they have a certain degree of fragility. Each painting will be sprayed with fixative and loosely attached to a
conservation board, faced with removable acid-free tissue and inserted into a protective plastic
envelope for protection during transit/storage.
The surface of the painting should not be brushed or rubbed. Small amounts of pigment may appear on the protective tissue - this is normal. The painting should be framed behind glass so that the surface does not touch the glass - preferably using a ’slip’ or aperture mount using conservation board.
Locally, we can supply aperture mounts and even framing - both at an extra cost - but these cannot be shipped or posted.
