View Full Version : How to store unframed pastel painting?

06-10-2001, 10:24 AM
Hi everybody :-)

I am a part time artist. I started painting just few years ago. I paint on my spare time after work and during weekend. I work as a sales coordinator in a chemical company. I think this is a very good forum. I may learn and share my art experience with all of the fellow artist around the world. (I wont say art knowledge as I am confidence if I have any knowledge in art, I am still learning :-)) Thank you to Wet Canvas for this free forum.

I work in pencil, chacoal and pastel. I like doing potraits. Can anybody give me an advice on how to store unframed pastel painting ? I put mine just in a plastic bag and will have to re-paint some part of it when I took it out oneday to be framed.

I would be very happy to hear from all of you.:-)

Best regards,

Welcome to Wet Canvas and the Pastels Forum, Patricia http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

As for your question -- someone just posed that very one a few weeks ago. Let me see if I can dig it up for you.

Okay, I found three. The top one is the most recent and is the one we were discussing a few weeks ago:

Hope this helps and please post if you have any more questions.
