Artwork and Photos
Artwork comes in many varieties.
Oil paintings can be done on board or canvas, generally framed without a mount or glass, but quite often with a slip added. Oils on canvas however need to be stretched before framing.
Other artworks include watercolour, poster, pencil and many other mediums, mounting is recommended using acid free boards and framing with glass.
Needlework can come in many variations including, cross stitch, embroidery, long stitch and stump work, often taking many years to complete. So if they are new pieces or family heirlooms, an understanding of the nature of the work is very important. Advice can be given on each individual piece, whether the fabric is stretchy or has become brittle through age, the desired presentation can be achieved by using the appropriate mounting, frame and glass.
