Can I safely remove painted, dried acrylic paintings from their stretchers for efficient storage?
Can I safely remove painted, dried acrylic paintings from their stretchers and roll them up for efficient storage? If so, is there anything in particular I need to know to keep the paintings safe? I inherited MANY from my dad that I can't part with but don't have room to store, either.
In theory, yes. Acrylic paint has the ability to stretch unlike other paints that loose their elasticity over time. I would recommend doing a trial run though, just to be sure... Get a cheap canvas and cover with acrylic, then dismantle and roll up for a month or so? See how it looks? Let us know how you get on... Oh, and perhaps speak to an art restoration place? They should have came across this before.
Yes, the paintings are virtually like plastic sheets with the acrylic that has become preserved in a solid state. You should be able to store them in cool dry area, and not exposed to a lot of higher temps and sunlight.

can you paint acrylic based paint over wood cabinets previously painted with an oil based paint?
