How to care for your new gouache painting.
This is an original painting, not a reproduction or print.
It is made of gouache on hot pressed 100% cotton rag - a type of very smooth paper that does not buckle when painted on.
Gouache paint is a little bit like ink and a little bit like chalk; meaning it will smudge if rubbed and run if wet.
Protect the surface of your painting from such catastrophes by framing your artwork.
Frame makers are artists in their own right and can be costly, but framing a painting will make it last a lifetime rather than a short time exposed to mess of life.
Box frames where the glass does not make contact with the face of the painting are best. These are sometimes used to frame photos in the same way; check out craft stores for affordable framing options.
