Crying Over Spilt Milk
Things that will spell the end to your art investment
are any sort of liquids splashed on a Giclea or serigraph.
Extensive exposure to sunlight, or even in your home should
you have high-powered halogen lights, which are not UV
inhibiting. Also, any sort of adhesives should be kept away
from artwork in general.
If you have fine oil originals, try not to hang them
over fireplaces because should you forget to open your flute
one time, your painting will be in definite need of
restoration. The soot and char from the fireplace, whether it
done once by accident or built up over the years, will darken
and change the colors of your painting.
