Joan of Art: Art Conservation Tips To Make Your Artwork Last Forever

Here are a few art conservation tips I have learned from art conservationist Mr. Ricky Francisco in one of the many seminar/workshops conducted during the 10th VIVA ExCon held in Cebu City in November 2008. Art conservation tip #1 - PRIME YOUR SUPPORT. Whether it is canvas, wood or board, have at least two coats of gesso or white latex paint, apply the second coat after the first one has dried.

As your support and paint are hygroscopic (the ability to absorb moisture in the air, causing the material to expand or contract), mold growth which damages the artwork is unavoidable in the humid Philippine environment. Additional art conservation tip for boards or wood supports - coat at least two times the front, sides and back for better protection.

Art conservation tip #3 - STUDY YOUR PAINTS AND MATERIALS.

And it doesn’t want one. “They told me, ‘It didn’t fit in their collection objectives,’” said Harrison’s biographer Katherine Gibson on Tuesday. “Actually, the National Gallery doesn’t have a single Yukon artist in its collection,” she said. Canadian art is often overlooked, said Harrison, sitting in a friend’s living room in Takhini on Tuesday. “The National Gallery seems to favour American art,” he said.

Sometimes the toughest part of a new project is actually getting started. In fact, just this small step can be a process in itself.
