Caring for your Pastel

We have a very simple tip for all our pastel paintings – do not touch the surface! Frame it behind glass ASAP, and the painting should not touch the glass. A professional framer would be able to provide the best framing recommendations. 

For temporary storage or shipping, it can be wrapped in clean paper that is folded so it won’t slide around or rub the surface. Glassine is ideal, but wax paper will do in a pinch. The main consideration is that the paper touching the surface not slide back and forth.
