Photo Surfaces, Food Styling Backgrounds

For Painted Wood Surfaces

All painted photo surfaces are finely constructed from 100% artist grade solid wood, and have a smooth wooden panel is cradled with a solid frame that won’t warp, stretch, or bend. 

The photo surfaces are coated with a water-based matte polycrylic finish, making them easy to clean with warm water and a damp soft cloth. The matte finish protects the surfaces from minor spills, however it does not guard against stains from food, liquid, or other objects. If there is a spill or liquid on the surface we recommend you immediately clean it to help prolong the life of the surface.

Do not use adhesives, putties, tapes, nor other sticky products on the surface. Use of these products may damage the surface.

Please understand it’s normal for your surface to slowly change in texture and tone with each use. Over time new marks or scratches may also appear.

The ideal way to store your surfaces is upright, in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. If you are leaning multiple boards against each other, we recommend lining them with cardboard or packing paper.

Photo Surfaces, Food Styling BackgroundsFor Painted Canvas Backdrops

All painted photo backdrops are seamless, 100% cotton, heavy duty canvas, and have a slightly wrinkled texture, but can be ironed or steamed on the reverse side. If time permits, hang your backdrop on a backdrop stand a few days before your shoot. Both humidity and gravity will relax the canvas.

The photo backdrops are painted with an interior latex or acrylic paint, making them easy to clean with warm water and a damp soft cloth. The paint does not guard against stains from food, liquid, or other objects. If there is a spill or liquid on the backdrop we recommend you immediately clean it to help prolong the life of the backdrop.

Please understand it’s normal for your backdrop to slowly change in texture and tone with each use. Over time new marks or scratches may also appear. The ideal way to store your backdrop is rolled tightly on a tube and wrapped (after it’s been ironed or steamed), in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
