Amborela Art
Sealed & Protected

All Amborela paintings are varnished with a clear acrylic coating. The finish is usually a semi-gloss, and is specified in the art listing. The varnish protects the front surface of your painting, and makes it easy to care for. You don’t need to panic if someone touches your art, spills on it, or it gets dusty. Wipe off the mess with a soft, damp cloth and done!

Water & Humidity

Amborela paintings look wonderful in bathrooms and kitchens, but one precautions should be taken to avoid damaging your artwork.  Avoid areas where water will be splashed directly above or below the canvas. If water runs down the back of the painting where it is unsealed you may damage the backing.

If humidity persists in your bathroom enough to make your wall paint peel, your humidity level will be too high for an Amborela painting as well. Otherwise, the varnish protects the painting from the typical humidity in a bathroom.

How to Dust Your Painting

These instructions apply specifically to Amborela art because it is acrylic and sealed. Additional and different precautions apply to art purchased elsewhere that might use different mediums or not be varnished. 

Flat Paintings: If your Amborela painting has a flat surface, you can use a soft dry cloth to dust the canvas if needed. The paints and inks are sealed and protected under the varnish.
Textured Paintings: If your Amborela painting has three dimensional embellishments or a textured background use a clean, dry paintbrush to dust the details as needed.

Prevent your painting from falling. In a fall, the frame under the canvas can be dented, the canvas can be torn, and the surface can be scratched.

  • Always hang your Amborela painting out of reach of children
  • Use 3M picture hangers instead of bumpers when hanging paintings in high traffic areas. But do not replace installed sawtooth hanger with a hook and loop style hanger.
  • Hang paintings securely with an angled nail. A picture hanger can help guide your nail at a proper 45 degree angle.

I am the artist creating the nature inspired paintings and surface patterns at Amborela. When I'm not in my studio, I am working in my garden with the flowers that inspire my artwork. I ooh and aah at beautiful colors and interesting textures.
