Glazing
 

Oil and acylic paintings are protected with a layer of varnish and do not need glazing. Other artwork is usually put behind glass.

  • Rolled glass is the cheapest but has imperfections that distort the image.

  • Float glass is free of imperfections but more expensive

  • ‘Non-reflective’ glass has an etched surface which diffuses the reflection but slightly dulls the image.

  • Artscreen is plastic glazing. Has ultra violet filter, is shatterproof but easily scratched and expensive.

  • Purified, coated glass transmits more light which improves clarity and minimises reflection. Looks wonderful but at horrendous cost.
