Acrylic is a lightweight picture glazing material ideal for use with large-scale works which need to be transported within their frames. Perspex picture glazing is also great value for money and is available with an ultra violet light filter to safeguard your artwork against the damaging effects of both natural and electric light. Whilst glass is both heavy and breakable, acrylic is lightweight and will not shatter if broken during transportation. However, Perspex art glazing is not available in a low glare variety and can be prone to visible expansion over large sizes. The material is not scratch resistant and may therefore show more visible signs of wear as time goes by. Due to holding a static charge, Perspex is not suitable for glazing pastels, charcoals or fine lightweight papers.
