View Full Version : Paper protection for oil pastels works of art

08-19-2007, 12:18 AM
Hello everyone. I am new here and I purchased some new paper as was recommended by some of you. Thats great. Now, my next question is how do you store your works of art? I have a few drawings that I made today with my oil pastels, but Im not sure how to stack them together for storage without getting the pastel to transfer to the next drawing? Is there some protection I should put between the sheets like maybe wax paper or something?? I appreciate your helping this little novice. Thank you again everyone. :)

Hi, BasLoki. You can put wax paper or glassine paper between your OP paintings. You might take a look at the new Getting Started in OPs thread (a sticky at the top of the main page). It contains information about storage and framing that you may find useful, as well as other information for getting started using OPs. Hope to see some of your paintings soon. Jane
