Anybody can advise me if it is possible to cover or framed my acrylic painting with glass. I understand it is not advisable to do it in Oil Painting. Thank you.

Many people do this, as I understand, with acrylic on paper and on canvas! If you can afford it, I don't think it's a problem at all.

I've been told to never frame under glass any canvas piece because the canvas would need to breath.

Violet, varnish your acrylic canvas wih Damar Varnish. If it is acrylic on paper, put it under glass or plexi-glass.

Cheers,

To highlight the work of a good framework to focus the viewer's attention to the work up, according to Rogge, director of the gallery experience Chaman, eye-catching frame is matched with the copy, you can use gold or thick the frame of mind, or mosaic or paint the wooden frame is required. The posters are generally strong to face with the characteristics of the plastic arts, simple and generous frame required to warrant the attention of decentralized production people, more appropriate is the simple iron box.
