 “How should I care for Acrylic Glazing?

You may safely clean the acrylic glazings we sell with a clean soft cloth.  Any of the new micro fiber cloths work well, just be sure to slightly dampen the micro fiber cloth with water.   Never use dirty rags or paper towels!  Paper towels are the equivalent of wadded and ground up wood chips and will scratch your acrylic glazing.

If you use a cleaner, be certain it is specifically formulated for acrylic.  Never use commercial window cleaners or solvents on acrylic!  (Cleaners and solvents will make your acrylic cloudy.)  

We clean our acrylic with Brillianize, which is a one-step acrylic cleaner and polish.  Other excellent brands of acrylic cleaner can readily be obtained such as Novus.  Just make sure the cleaner is specifically formulated for acrylic, then just dampen your micro fiber cloth and wipe.

 Cleaning instructions are provided with the purchase of our acrylic products.

What's the best way to remove dust particles from a photo or matting?”

 Always treat your fine art photographs as you would a water color.  You may safely use a soft fine art brush to remove dust from a photo or mat, or you may use a hand held blower bulb.  Never use anything damp including canned air.

“How should I clean a metal print?”

 Use a high quality microfiber cloth to wipe the surface of your metal print. 

Minor smudges like fingerprints can be safely be removed by wiping the stain with a dry microfiber.   If more heavily stained, dampen part of your microfiber with water, wipe the surface, and then dry with a microfiber.  You may also use an ammonia free glass cleaner to wipe the surface, just as you would a glass glazing.

Avoid using paper towels for cleaning any art object as they may leave fine surface scratches.

Metal prints are durable and waterproof as the image is infused right into the metal sheet.
