CLOT hand-painted canvas backdrops are delicately painted by expert artists to make sure that all backdrops are 100% handmade. The multiple layers dyes, paints and oils give the backdrop unique texture and visual look, which also need some proper maintenance for the long-lasting service.

How to take care of the high-quality but relatively expensive canvas backdrop? It must be a critical problem for people who have owned some hand-painted canvas backdrops. Here we will offer you some tips for caring your cherished backdrops. 

  • Daily Cleaning

Daily cleaning is important for all sorts of backdrops, hand-painted canvas backdrop is no exception. Moreover, the hand-painted backdrop needs extra more caring to maintain the dye colors and oil-painted textures. We recommend a daily check and cleaning after the session. If there are some dusts, hairs or other debris, use a soft brush to gently remove the dusts. Make sure there is no residue on the backdrop.

  • Remove the Stains

For hand-painted backdrops, it is better to avoid severe stains on the hand-painted multiple-layered surface. However, it is inevitable that there may be some situations that cause damage or dirt to the backdrops during the session.

When there is normal stain during the shooting, you can use a clean and lint-free cloth with mild soup to slightly clean the upper most layer. Do not rub too hard, you may destroy the painted surface. Classic laundry soap will suffice, do not use solvents or chemicals. Do not use too wet cloth, superfluous water may soak into the backdrop and cause cracking in the future.

  • RemovCreases

All CLOT hand-painted backdrops are folded in PVC tube for shipment. Normally there is no crease on the backdrop. If there occurs slightly crease during the multi-day transportation, you can hang the backdrop on the stand for several days. The weight of the wooden bar on the bottom will help to erase the crease. You can also lay the backdrop flat and put some heavy but flat subject where there is a crease.  

  • Store the Backdrop

The best way to store your hand-painted backdrop is to hang it on the stand. If you do not have a spare stand or plenty of space, you can roll it up in the PVC tube which you receive it. It is a good way to get rid of dust, dirt or creases. Or you can just roll the backdrop up and tape together. It is safe to tape the back side due to the durable heavy canvas material.

The key point to store the hand-painted backdrop is to make sure the place is clean and dry. The multiple layers dyes, paints and oils would get destroyed if there is bacterial growth in damp environments. Moreover, the storage space should be lucifuge without much sunshine. The sunlight may fade the backdrop.
