Gallery Tip for Scuffed Walls

15 Feb

I dread touch-up painting the walls of the gallery before a big exhibition (a theme on my mind today as Rosemary Feit Covey’s show, “Death of the Fine Art Print” opens this Friday).  There are too many variables! For example, the paint doesn’t quite match anymore due to being stacked on the backroom shelf a little too long, or the paint is relatively new but comes out dry because the can wasn’t properly sealed last time touch-up painting was tackled.

Again, since this theme is fresh on my mind, I thought I would share a gallery short-cut to try before diving into a full scale painting project:   the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser!  This wonderful product buffs out nearly any scuff or scrape on the walls, including oil paint, pencil, and hanging hardware marks.

Although I did do some minor painting today, the Magic Eraser solved most of my wall scars. Give it a try!
