- Gently dust your canvas paint with a soft dry cloth to prevent dust from building up on them. A feather brush can also be used to brush off the dust from your painting. Do not apply pressure on the paintings when cleaning them. You can use a damp cloth but do not use a wet cloth or chemicals to clean them. When cleaning your canvas paintings, you should take them off the wall. If there is major dirt on your canvas that you cannot clean out, take your painting to a professional cleaner to help you with that.
- Exposure to direct UV rays from sunlight or a fluorescent bulb will cause your canvas paint to fade quickly. It is advisable to keep them in a room with minimal sunlight and no fluorescent bulb.
- Do not expose your canvas paints and paints to heat and dampness. Parts of the house that give off heat or high humidity such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and rooms with air vents should be avoided.
