Product Care

Let's talk Care.

If you choose to invest in a Paperbark Artwork, Original Watercolour or Archival Print you want to make sure you give it the right care , so the artwork looks as beautiful as the day you purchased it.

Paperbark Art Series

These paperbark works have been created with intent, love and respect. Because of their organic and raw nature - they require a little extra love and care.

  • Each paperbark artwork is a freehand illustration using archival ink. Archival ink is fade and water resistant and designed to last a lifetime.
  • Paperbark is a raw and organic material from the native tree genus Melaleuca, the Myrtle family. Due to it's raw and organic composition, the paperbark may darken slightly over time.
  • The artwork is pressed between two panes of glass protecting and preserving it.
  • Avoid using any glass cleaners as they contain ammonia or paper towel. They will damage the surface.
  • Instead use a damp soft microfibre cloth to clean the surface.
  • Avoid displaying your artwork in direct sunlight or rooms with high humidity.
