All packing materials for fine art objects should be acid-free, and chemically inert.

The method of packing and the packing materials selected will depend on factors such as:
• The material(s) the object is made from
• The condition of the object
• The size, shape and weight of the object
• The environment in which it is kept
• How long the object will stay in the packaging
