The Gals have had a few people ask them when “archival quality” means lately so they decide to try and tackle this many faceted subject from a mixed media art standpoint. Have a listen as they try to clear up confusion about acid free and archival papers, tapes, and glues and explain why they are necessary.

Katie mentioned Gaylord Archival as an excellent source for archival quality/preservation/restoration quality products and tools. You can find them here.
We also found a good article on Artists Network touching a bit on the unique situation mixed media artists face in regards to archival issues; read that here.
Thought we are sure paper napkins are far from archival quality, we did want to share Katie’s pretty napkin flower paper sculptor, Arnold Drake World gave her at Powell’s Books a couple weeks ago (The Gals talk about this flower at the top of the show).
