Picture of Dust proofing art work
I wanted to display my wife's paintings in our home without framing it. If I were to just hang it around then it was bound to gather dust and loose its freshness

So, here is a simple and cost effective way of dust-proofing the work using cling film. You may then use some sticky fixers to stick it where you desire

Step 1:

  • Art work that you want to protect [in this case it is approx. 11.5"x16"]
  • Cling film
  • Sticky Fixers [Double sided]


  • Scissors

be very sure the paint is totally dry, depending on mediums and paint thickness it can take longer than expected to totally cure. A fellow artist at a local artwalk saves the plastic the canvas's are sold in and use's that to protect his work. There's a great forum for artist of all mediums at www.wetcanvas.com, from the look of your wifes gorgeous work she'd be extremely welcome

It doesn't stick to the paint, or does it (as part of the technique)? L

As long as one wraps after the paints dry, it doesn't stick. I have tested this on couple of paintings
OK thanks for that. Any prospect of a tasty food instructable? L
