When you are done, stick on the bump its for extra air in front of your painting and pop the lid on. Two of our heavy-duty black rubber bands and a clear plastic zip bag are included to make sure nothing happens on the way home.

The above Facebook post was made as a thank you for our donation of art cocoons (complete with extravagantly staged photo of awesome rooster painting!). In their follow up comment, Women Artists of the West makes a valid point about frames being one of their biggest expenses.
There are ways to avoid the high cost. There are yard sale frames, second hand store frames, clearance section frames and discount store frames. All of these involve time shopping for deals; as well as any time/materials spent cleaning, touching up or completely restoring bargain frames. Some artists choose not to frame because their art sells right off the easel in an Art Cocoon.
Art Cocoons offer professionals a way to display artwork before a sale and to protect it after. Our sturdy cardboard carriers last for years. Paint right in them, all the way to the edge of your canvas panel! Display your paintings without removing them from their carriers and send them safely off to their new homes. The price point drops significantly when you purchase lots of three or six.
