Poor quality tapes can damage art!




This is not what you want to see when you take apart any frame, let alone a drawing by L.S. Lowry. Self adhesive tapes such as seen here (yellow/brown masking tape and parcel tape) should not be used inside framing, and should NEVER come into contact with the art. You can see in the second photo where the adhesive in the parcel tape has dried out and left a nasty residue.
