Tips for Storing Art and Supplies
There are many reasons why it’s a good idea to keep your art supplies properly organized and stored in art storage cabinets or a designated space. For one, the more organized you keep your supplies, the less you have to puncture your flow of creativity to find a certain brush or utensil. Organization allows you to concentrate fully on your creation. Secondly, properly storing supplies in an art supply storage cabinet helps prolong shelf life to prevent you from wasting money. Here are some tips for your art storage:
• Do what you can to prevent moisture. Supplies should be kept in a cool, dry art storage cabinet. Do not use plastic containers, tissue paper or cement. Plastic containers may keep moisture out, but they can also lock moisture in, as can porous cement. Tissues break down quickly and will leave residue on your artwork.
• Organize supplies by purpose and item, and line up paints according to the color spectrum to find what you need quickly.
• If you have several smaller paint brushes, wash the paint out of them after use and then store them in a drinking straw to prevent splaying.
• Be sure to hang and store your artwork on the proper surfaces and racks to prevent cracking, smudging and other mishaps.
