Hello Everyone!

This is totally a noob question, but here goes.

What is the safest way to display a mixed media (paper and water colors) on wood? Mainly concerned about UV damage.

Not sure if this type of piece is fine as long as kept from direct sun light or if some type of frame needs to be built.

Thank you

Okay, well I just got word from the artist and they said framing behind UV glass will protect the paper/ink from UV as well dust. So that's what I will do.
