I have a pastel painting which I need to ship. Could somebody advise me about how to do it without smudging the pastel ?

you found a very good thread with different ideas !

a tape i use to secure the painting at the edges to the backing is called Artists Tape ;
it will peel away with care if the piece is to be re-mounted/framed after arrival .
> lift up a corner with a knife edge and peel back away from the piece .
( i don't know if it is a product you can get easily )

i hope everything goes well . :)
