So you have made an artwork but you are scared that it will break or it will lose its luster after some time. Art can come in many forms and they can be preserved in different ways. Here are some things that you can do to preserve your work of art:

  1. Make sure that you store your artwork in a safe place. Placing it on a cabinet wherein it will not be squished or exposed to insects that can ruin artworks will help a lot. You can also make a makeshift cabinet that can make your artwork safe (check out http://www.reidsupply.com for cabinet building materials).
  2. Steer your artwork away from sunlight. The UVA and UVB rays of the sun can make any artwork fade. This is not a good thing if you would like to make sure that your art work will last for a long time.
  3. Do not handle it so much.

Artworks are masterpieces that cannot be recreated. Make sure that you take care of each artwork that you do.
