A tip for wrapping work


  • This is a good quality, clear release film, its low adhesion properties make it ideal for wrapping paintings with.
  • Breathable (work can produce a sweat in polythene and bubble wrap)
  • There are two thicknesses, the thinner hostaphan is easier to work with when wrapping.

X We recommend NOT to use bubble wrap when packaging a painting as it can damage work by transfering the bubble marks on to the surface over time.

Hostaphan® Foil RN75 140cm wide

Thick hostaphan can also be used when painting as paint doesn't stick to it. So a layer of acrylic could be easily eased off forming a sheet of paint.
