Custom Picture Framing has come along way in improving the longevity of your framed art. If you see a change in your art that is under glass it is a good idea to get things updated.
Original art is not only a financial investment it holds sentimental value, it would be a shame to have it deteriorate right in front of your own eyes. You may remember getting your art custom framed by a professional many years ago, however time has given the picture frame industry superior products to protect your art. Products like; conservation, archival mat boards, acid free foamcore, museum glass and even quality wood frames that will hold everything together securely.
Here is an example of a beautiful work of art that was custom framed possibly 30-40 years ago. The owner noticed that the art work was fading and asked if I would put Museum Glass on it.
Once the picture frame was dismantled we found that; masking tape was used instead of archival acrylic corners to hold the art, and that the art had been mounted onto cardboard not archival mat board or foamcore. Cardboard ages paper quickly and masking tape is meant to be temporary not permanent.
Revisiting sentimental memories can be a rewarding experience. Finding information you had forgotten or didn’t know about may improve the investment on your art.
