Just received this amazing commission from a UK based artist (Jacob Elgaard). It came with this nasty bend down the middle. Any advice on how to save this piece? I'm desperate.
I'm working with the artist to try to get a refund through shipping insurance. He's also devastated and seems to be super helpful.oh nnoooooo that is terrible.
from what little experience I have with foam mounting board, once it is bent, it is done.
the only thing I would strongly suggest is to take it to a reputable gallery (art or framing) in your area and consult with a professional.
Trying to fix it yourself could make things horribly worse.
Did you check with the folks that sent it to you to see what kind of insurance may have been involved for shipping damages ??
