Materials and Care

In my shop you can find art works made by different materials: charcoal, wax pastel, oil pastel and dry pastel.

All of them was made on paper.

I use only professional quality materials and archival paper which means that tart works can live forever if it is properly framed with glass. I can provide framing tips.

Charcoal art were covered with a special fixative however I do not recommend to touch a work surface.

Wax pastel art are not sensitive to touch however do not rub a surface of an art work. 

Oil pastel art have a bit oily surface so don't rub a surface of an oil pastel art.

Dry pastel art - careful handling is a must.

Do not touch the painted surface. Putting fingers or other items on top of a pastel work or allowing it to be rubbed or flexed will damage the surface. 

I wrap an art around which a glassine paper, please keep a glassine paper on a work until framing.

I usually use standard sizes paper for my art works to frame them easy. So you can buy a standard size frame and do it yourself. It's a good idea to use a mat. 

I provide framing tips, feel free to ask!

If you are not sure how to do framing, go to your local frame store.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
