Taking care of your oil paintings

Most of us love to paint but very few people take care of their paintings. The artists definitely know how to care for their paintings, especially the oil paintings. The new beginners need a little help with this as they might not know how to care for their paints properly.

There are certain things which you must keep in mind while dealing with oil paintings. You must never stand the canvas against any sharp or pointed object. This can cause damage to your canvas. Then you must keep the canvas far away from the sunrays. This can fade away the colors of the painting and thus will make your painting look dull. Then there are chances of the canvas being covered with dust. To avoid that you can cover it with a clean cloth or even put cellophane papers on it. In case, dust has already fallen on it, you can wipe it off with a very soft and dry cloth. You can even blow off the dust with a blower, but that’s only if you’re not allergic to dust.
