How do I clean my artwork?
Extreme caution should be used whenever it is necessary to clean the surface of your Fine Art photograph. Dust the picture glazing with a soft, damp cloth or chamois. Apply only light pressure, rinse with little clean water, and dry by blotting the cloth. Dry or gritty cloths may cause surface scratches and create a static electric charge on the surface.
Do not use window cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds, or solvents such as acetone, gasoline, or lacquer thinner to clean your image, as this may cause permanent damage to your image.
Our wooden frames have a protective wax finish that, when handled properly, should not require care other than periodic dusting. A soft, dry cloth may be used to remove spots or debris. Avoid the use of liquid and chemical cleaning products, as these will cause the protective finish to deteriorate over time.
A high-quality microfiber cloth may be used on our black cube frames. Apply only light pressure, rinse with clean water, and dry by blotting the cloth. We recommend using compressed or canned air to remove any surface dust that accumulates on the liner over time, making sure that no moisture is expelled from the can during the cleaning process.
How do I light my artwork?
Proper lighting will add the final touch to your Boris Mar artwork. We highly advice seeking advice from lighting professionals to obtain the best results.
Lighting your image properly involves using a mixture of spotlights and spreads. The proper degree of spread will depend on the distance of the light fixture from the photograph. While several light bulbs can sufficiently light your image, we use recommend MR16 halogen bulbs. It is best to seek the advice of an electrician or lighting professional to ensure the proper installation of lighting to complement your space.
