Float mounting

​If you have chosen to have your artwork float mounted at Dyson Art. Please be aware that this archival process involves using cotton rag very low adhesive pre- gummed tape. This tape has a reversible quality and has no impact on the artwork; however​,​ by its nature​,​ the qualities of the tape are inevitably affected by ambient temperature and humidity.

On occasion, because the Artwork paper is also affected in the same way, this can result in the artwork rippling and or coming away from the backboard for no other reason than environmental temperature and humidity.

As we cannot be responsible for external conditions once the framed artwork leaves our studio we ​will assume​ our clients​ are aware of this​ and are happy to proceed with this caveat in place.

If you are interested in or feel your artwork requires a more specialised archival mounting process, we will be more than happy to supply a quote for a specialist conservator upon your request.​
