We seal all of Alyssa Silos's Originals with high grade resin, varnish, or fixative spray (the finish is determined on the medium used) to ensure the best preservation. It's recommended to mat and frame pieces done on paper since they are more sensitive to their environment.
FINE ART PRINTS
Our prints are designed to last 100 years. However, here are some precautions to further the longevity of your print and keep it in its best shape:
One of the worst and most common factors that lead to a damaged print! Try to keep direct sunlight and artificial light to a minimum so you can avoid yellowing.
☾ HEAT & HUMIDITY
Extreme humidity can cause mold and mold encourages discoloration of your print. We encourage you to not place your print near a stove, shower, or sink.
We offer a professionally done mat and frame option. This will sustain the longevity of your Fine Art print- since it helps prevent contact with dirt, dust, mold spores, and atmospheric pollutants. This is important for the life of the piece.
Matting and framing also intensifies the art by adding size, color and depth to what’s being portrayed. Naturally enhancing the work aesthetically.
☾ Machine wash cold inside out, with like colors.
☽ Tumble dry low or hang dry.
☾ Mild detergent, no bleach.
