When quality pastels are combined with archival paper the result has the potential to retain its vibrant appearance for hundreds of years.
The biggest threat to pastels is smearing. Framing under glass not only protects them from being touched, it creates a barrier to dirt, dust, and grease. All artwork needs to be separated from the glass by a small spacer, both to prevent touching and to accommodate natural expansion and contraction.
Never frame pastels under acrylic! The electrostatic nature of the acrylic can pull the pastel off the paper.
