Packing & Moving Household Goods/Oil Paintings

Oil PaintingsEdit

Each oil painting should be covered over with a non-acidic clear plastic wrap and then bubble wrapped or wrapped in a paper pad, or foam wrap, and then placed in a picture box or a flattened out box, taping the ends shut once it's inside. Bubble wrap can leave impressions of the bubbles on oil paintings so be sure to use the non-acidic clear plastic wrap over the oil so that this doesn't happen.

Another option is to cover the oil painting with glassine. This is like wax paper, except a LOT larger. It is non-acidic. And it is available from most moving companies. When loading the packed Oil Paintings into a truck, keep them on their edge, do NOT lay flat, and keep closer to the floor rather than the roof where the temperatures are a lot hotter.--Get-moving (talk) 23:51, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

(Someone who knows, please fix the above inconsistency: it first says "non-acidic clear plastic wrap", then later it says "acidic clear wrap" - which is it?)
