    Question asked 2017-04-04 13:42:45 ... Most recent comment 2017-04-04 13:52:00

    ​Do you have any suggestions on how to roll a 10' x 10' oil on muslin painting for storage? My friend acquired the large picture and cannot immediately stretch or hang it and was going to line with glassine and roll over plastic tubing, it had been folded in 10 inch sections. I thought the glassine was a bad idea and wasn't sure about plastic tubing.

    ​We recommend rolling the painting paint layer FACING OUT on a wide diameter tube (such as a least 10-12 inches in diameter). Glassine is really only suitable for short-term storage so it would be preferable (and safer) to use something like soft Tyvek or even volara. You can then cover the whole thing with Mylar for extra protection from the elements. Hope this helps!
