Framing Artwork [How to Clean Acrylic]

When we think about framing art, we present a frame with a solid glass inlay. Traditional glass can be an incredibly heavy and fragile crop for framing, which is a risky choice for your art. Shards of glass can damage art when falling and this causes extreme concern. Many art galleries and museums do not use traditional glass with artwork because of the risk of damaging the piece.

Modern technology provides an alternative to glass. This alternative is acrylic. Acrylic has 3 qualities that make it a good substitute for glass when framing art. Acrylic is an excellent heat insulator, light and safe.

Acrylic requires special care. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Do not use ammonia-containing cleaners.
  • Do not use paper towels for cleaning, this can scratch the acrylic surface.
  • Always use a soft cloth for cleaning, microfiber is a good choice.
  • Plastic cleaners are a good choice for cleaning and remove static electricity.

Agree, these are very simple recommendations, accessible to anyone. Follow this and enjoy your art for many years.
