Framing Sydney: From the iconic Opera House to the countless galleries and studios tucked away in hidden corners, Sydney offers a feast for the eyes. But what happens when you want to bring a piece of that artistic magic home? Framing your artwork is crucial for its preservation and presentation. However, not all framing methods are created equal. While standard framing might enhance the aesthetics, it may not offer the long-term protection your valuable artwork deserves.

Enter the world of conservation framing.

Conservation framing is a specialized technique that prioritizes the preservation of your artwork above all else. It uses a combination of high-quality materials and meticulous processes to create a protective environment for your precious pieces.

Here's how conservation framing helps "frame" your artwork for the future:

  • Acid-free materials: Standard framing often uses materials like cardboard and adhesives that contain acidic elements. These acids can slowly deteriorate your artwork over time, causing discoloration, brittleness, and even complete breakdown. Conservation framing, on the other hand, uses acid-free materials like cotton rag mats and archival-quality adhesives, ensuring the longevity of your artwork.

  • UV-protective glazing: Light, especially ultraviolet (UV) rays, is another major enemy of artwork. UV exposure can cause fading, cracking, and weakening of the materials. Conservation framing utilizes specialized glass or acrylic that filters out harmful UV rays, significantly slowing down the aging process of your artwork.

  • Reversible techniques: Unlike standard framing, conservation framing prioritizes the reversibility of the process. This means that your artwork can be safely removed from the frame in the future without damage, allowing for conservation or restoration if needed.

Investing in conservation framing is an investment in the future of your artwork. It ensures that your cherished pieces remain vibrant and beautiful for generations to come.
