Canvas paintings and photos are very resilient, but they can also be damaged by water damage. If the painting becomes damp or dirty it will not only look terrible, it will also take more time to dry. How do you protect a canvas artwork in a bathroom? Here are renovation tips for you to consider:
You can protect your acrylic paintings from damage due to water damage by drying them quickly after they have been installed in your home. To do this, you should hang your artwork where it is not likely to be exposed to direct sunlight, such as on a wall. The type of canvas you choose to hang in your home will depend on its longevity and the amount of sunlight it will be exposed to. When hanging your canvas prints in your bathroom, it is important to pay attention to the direction of the light. For example, if your bathroom is located in an area with a lot of natural sunlight, you will want to place your prints on a wall facing the window. Conversely, if your bathroom is located in an area with little or no natural sunlight, you will want to hang your acrylic art in a corner, so that it receives enough light to dry properly.
You can also protect your prints from damage by sealing them using an acrylic sealer. To apply an acrylic sealer to your canvas prints you should first place them in a bowl of hot water. After the prints get wet, immediately place them in the sealer so that they begin to bubble.
When cleaning your acrylic art pieces it is generally very safe to use cleaning products that are fragrance free, and that do not contain chlorine. A word of caution about using products containing chlorine and bleach. You should avoid putting these types of products on your bathroom wall or countertops. If you need to clean your canvas prints on bathroom floors, you should use a mild non-caustic bathroom cleaner, preferably one that contains glycerine. You can find these cleaners at most home supply retailers.
There are certain places in your home where you should avoid putting your art work on. First, you should avoid putting your canvas prints in your children’s bathroom. The reason why you want to avoid putting your prints in this room is that the rooms are generally wet and humid, and can potentially cause your acrylic art to crack. In addition, depending on the quality of your child’s bathroom, the surface can accumulate bacteria. In general, you should also avoid placing any type of photo or image display in a bathroom with a bath tub.
There are some special circumstances when you might want to hang your fine art in your bathroom. For instance, if you have a small bathroom, but would like to have a beautiful, large canvas artwork hanging over the shower head, you should consider hanging your fine art in an upholstered towel stand. Additionally, if you have a vanity, you can place an acrylic wall art on the edge of your vanity counter. By following these special decorating situations, you will be able to hang your artwork in a very attractive manner, and it will be protected from humidity.
Canvas paintings and other fine art pieces are excellent decorating tools, but they can also be dangerous if not displayed in the proper areas. When decorating your bathroom, you must do so in a safe manner. First of all, do not put your canvas prints on the floor. They will normally get wet if it gets wet, but if they are placed on a damp bathroom floor, your artwork may begin to warp and stain. As well, bathroom floors often contain chemicals and toxins that can leech into your fine art pieces, causing them to fade and becoming unsightly. In general, you should only hang original oil paintings in bathroom walls and shower stalls.
The answer to the question of can canvas get wet? generally depends on whether or not it was specifically designed to be hung on a wall or in a bathroom. If it was specifically designed for bathroom use, then you can probably hang your oil paintings outdoors on a shower curtain or on a rack outside. If it was designed for hanging outside, then you would want to purchase the best canvas waterproofer that you could afford to protect your artwork from the rain. Either way, if your canvas does become wet, make sure that you quickly remove your art piece from the water before it dries out completely.
