Struggling to get the perfect photo of your beloved pet? You aren't alone!
Most pet owners can agree it's easy to fill the camera roll with a million and one snapshots. However, getting the perfect one isn't always as easy. We're sharing 4 tips on how to take the best photo of your pet.
Congratulations you’ve invested (or were gifted) a custom hand-painted artwork that you love. Once unwrapped and displayed it can be the masterpiece that spices up your indoor decor. Don’t forget the most important part, a little extra effort to keep your Paintru in the best possible condition. But how exactly are you supposed to do that? Follow along this article to see the 5 easy care steps we recommend to keep your painting shining for years to come!
Step 1: Placing and Framing
Do not lean the front or back of the canvas against a sharp or pointed object, it will leave a dent that will disfigure your beautiful artwork. If you must lean it against something, use a frame to ensure nothing presses against the canvas.
Step 2: Sun Exposure
Any prolonged exposure to direct sunlight will fade the designs in your oil, acrylic, and watercolor painting. Be aware of this when choosing a location for your Paintru. If you would like to have artwork in a location where there is direct sun at times, do consider having it framed behind a UV-protected glass. There are different grades of UV protection; the bigger protection, the better. Also, never expose your painting to extreme heat, cold, or humidity.
Step 3: Dusting
Dust your Paintru regularly using a dry, soft, and fine brush. As for the frames, one can use a damp cloth or whatever is used with furniture depending on the material the frame is made of. We don’t spray anything (like Pledge) on the artwork. Also, check your painting regularly (at the back) for any pests or insects.
Step 4: Hanging
The best way to enjoy your Paintru is at a good eye level. Make note of the weight of the painting/frame and use suitable heavy screws and hooks. Then make sure the painting is hanging securely and safely.
Step 5: Storing and Protecting During a Move.
Plan on moving soon or not ready to decorate your indoor space? If your Paintru suffered paint loss, weakened canvas, tears, water, fire, or insect damage it is better to leave the cleaning and restoration to a professional art restorer. Their goal is to stabilize and integrate any repairs in order to preserve the original artwork.
