    Mother's Day Present - finished and delivered... :)

    "Durdle Door" - Jurassic Coast, Dorset, England. Acrylics on Canvas 18 x 20"

    STEP TEN

    Finished Parcel is weighed. Exact shipping cost calculated and any partial refund for the customer calculated and added on here (Artfinder). Now comes the wait for my tame delivery guys! :)

    Both halves of the carton are taped shut. Please note I tend to tape the edges and rim of the carton like parcel tape is going out of fashion - having worked as a postal sorter when I was a student I know that cartons this size get slid EVERYWHERE ! Robust protection is the name of the game. "Fragile" tape is then added :)

    I slip the now fully-wrapped canvas into it's box. I use telescopic boxes as they allow me to ship different size canvases, but mainly they add a very solid protection against objects that might pierce the packaging during shipping. Each half of the box is double-ply cardboard - once they are overlapping that obviously doubles.

    Slip in some goodies for my buyer (firmly bubble-wrapped) in this instance Turkish Delight. Well, I live in Harringay: London's main Turkish Community. If you have a nut allergy please message me and I will find a suitable replacement. :)

    At this point I slip in a signed Certificate of Authenticity (in the forlorn hope that you will take it along to Antiques Roadshow 50 years from now and get a nice surprise!)

    Next, the parcel is wrapped in large bubble-wrap to add further cushioning and to increase the volume avoiding movement within the boxes during transit.

    At this point I normally add thin strips of small bubble-wrap to the ends. This adds initial protection for the corners of the canvas : the most common damage to badly-packaged canvases during shipping.

    The small bubble-wrap is secured with parcel tape.

    STEP TWO

    STEP TWO

    I wrap the canvas in two or three layers of small bubble-wrap - without the Glassine Paper the imprint of the bubbles would risk be evident on the paint-surface after shipping.
