Hand-Painting on Furniture
Theodore Alexander artists painstakingly create our hand-painted finishes using meticulous brushstrokes and age-old techniques. You can use a good quality furniture polish to maintain and preserve the unique artwork. Take care not to use abrasive cloths or polishes that may scratch a hand-painted finish.
- Eglomisé – Eglomisé is a hand-made, centuries-old process that creates a stunning reflective surface. Regularly dust with a feather duster and wipe clean with a damp, lint-free cloth.
- Argento – The Argento finish from Theodore Alexander is the result of an exclusive finishing process. From time to time, wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth, taking care not to over-wet the surface.
- Gilding – A soft, clean cloth and a little furniture wax now and then is recommended. Avoid direct sunlight, excessive swings in temperature and humidity, and try to clean up spills immediately.
