How to Protect Paintings from Cigar Smoke?

Recommended Posts

Other than by not smoking cigars.

Got a client buying lots of paintings from me, and lots of cigars from elsewhere. He asked, I dunno. Youtube not helping me live my life on this one.

These are acrylic paintings on canvas or wood. Since he smokes I guess he's mainly concerned about discoloration. I guess he could frame them behind glass.

Anybody dealt with this?

Lol. Random, yet an interesting question. If he's a rich dude and can afford it, I would imagine having a heavy duty ventilation system for his smoking room would help.

This.  They're not that expensive, Unless he's trying to de-smoke an entire house.

Probably the best long-term solution, but I don't want to cut into his painting-buying fund.

Houses filled with *fine* art don't reek of smoke, they have *ambiance* you uncultured buffoon. Just ask Charlene Tilton over there on the wall, she'll tell ya.

If he just has to smoke cigars, then he should be prepared to piss on them weekly to removed the residue. It's kinda like treating jellyfish stings.

Have I missed that OP is an artist?  We need to see some examples of your work please.

Thank you. You already have, more than 3000 times. Some say I resemble a French armadillo. (flicks ash.)

This is what the folks on the art conservation board think. My buddy the frame-maker who would actually make money off the idea? He thinks it's hopeless and that no matter what, the art will soon reek.

This fits into my overall view of the world.
