Care Instructions: The image is scratch proof, however, it’s not invincible. Anything stronger than stone will scratch stone. The greatest vulnerability is when your stones are traveling. To protect them ensure the image face is well covered and there is no pressure directly onto the surface.
Do not place anything on top of your stone print, this is a fine art print and not a glazed tile.
Stone is a porous material and can act like a sponge which is why we don’t use extra sealants to adhere the ink to the stone - they bond as naturally as stone and ink can. For extra protection, you can spray a little art sealant on your stone otherwise, avoid dirty hands, inks, oils or sharp objects.
Stone is a natural material that comes with small marks – bubbles, leaching and pour lines. These are unavoidable and need to be adopted as part of the character of Stone printing. Marks on the surface of the print: These are mostly oil marks, from fingerprints or residual oil from when we seal the timber. The best way to get rid of oil is with oil! Take a clean cloth and dip it in some olive oil. Dab off the excess and rub on the mark using a circular motion. Work the circles out and over the stone until the whole surface is covered. This should do the trick.
