What is the proper way to ship unframed pastels? I saw that some here are rolling them and mailing in tubes, but how do you do that without smudging?

Here's the thread for the discussion on shipping....

The main things I've learned about shipping pastels are...
Do not use a plastic or any other surface next to the painting that will create static electricity. It will lift the pastel!

Do anchor your pastel so that when the painting is removed, the buyer won't smudge the painting.

Hope that thread is of help to you!
