Looking After Your Portrait

 Dog portrait? Cat portrait? You'll want your pet portrait to last a lifetime! Just follow the guidelines below and your hand-painted pet portrait should last the test of time!

Every care will be taken to use lightfast and archival products on Original Artwork. Artwork meant for prints only may be created using less lightfast materials.

To ensure that your artwork looks its best for many years I would recommend that it is framed behind UV artglass and hung out of direct sunlight.

Please take every care not to touch the artwork front so as not to smudge or damage it.......especially pastel which may not have fixative on it.
Pastelwork on sanded surfaces like pastelmat are not usually sprayed with a fixative. This ensures that it stays bright and vibrant as fixative can cause colour change.
