What does a puzzle conserver do?

The Ravensburger Puzzle Conserver Permanent is particularly developed for all Ravensburger puzzles and allows you to glue and hang your puzzle. The completed puzzle is then sealed and kept in order for the colors to keep their beauty. When you want to play with your puzzle again, just remove the protective sheeting and you are ready to go.

This permanent solution for puzzles has many advantages over using tape or stickers: the picture won't come off your puzzle when you sit on it, you can't get glue on the pictures, and removing a picture is easy. There's no need to worry about losing your place while playing your puzzle either; the picture will always be back where it belongs when you're done.

Puzzles can be difficult to store, but with this conservator, you don't have to worry about them getting lost forever. They make great gifts for puzzle lovers; just wrap it up and add a note saying who it's from. Or you can frame it and use it as a decoration in your room.

This item is part of Ravensburger's Classic Collection, which includes other popular storage solutions such as the Pencil Case and the Box Clock.

How do you use the Ravensburger puzzle conserver?

Ravensburger Puzzle Conserver: How to Use It

  1. Shake the conserver well before use (glue particles sink over time).
  2. Do not store the conserver at a temperature below 0° C.
  3. If a puzzle is too damp during application, the cardboard may swell.

Is puzzle conserver a glue?

Clear glue is used in the conservator to tie jigsaw pieces together, guaranteeing that the picture does not come apart over time. Clear glue is also used as an adhesive for painting puzzles because it will not yellow with age.

Puzzle conservators usually work under glass-free conditions, so they need good adhesive properties and have no tendency to distort the piece they are working on. Modern glues meet these requirements.

Conservators use different techniques to complete their projects. Some use markers to color code their pieces while others use pencils. It all depends on how they want to display the puzzle.

Generally, conservators use acrylic paints which can be thinned with water or mediums. They can also be mixed with other colors to create new shades. Paint brushes range in size from small points to large flats.

Acrylic paint is made up of tiny particles of plastic or oil suspended in a solvent. This mixture can be applied to any surface and will dry to a solid film. There are two types of acrylic paints: cold-painted and hot-painted. Cold-painted items are placed in a plastic bag and covered with acrylic paint.

How do you preserve a complete puzzle?

The easiest approach to keep your puzzle in good condition for framing is to use puzzle glue. There are puzzle glues available on Amazon, but our favorite is the original Mod Podge Puzzle Saver. All you need is Mod Podge and something to apply it with—we use a putty knife, but a brush has also been used. The key is to not go too thickly applied or else the paint will be hard to wash off.

Once your piece is coated in Mod Podge, let it dry completely before moving onto the next step. If you wait until later, you'll have trouble getting some of the smaller pieces into place.

We prefer to use flat boards for our puzzles because they're easy to store and can be used over and over again. You can find cut-to-size wooden puzzle boards at home improvement stores. If you want to use old books or furniture, just make sure they are sound and stable before using them as backing material.

Book pages are the most common choice for backing materials because they're readily available and low cost, but any type of sturdy paper or cardboard will work fine. Avoid using papers with glossy or waxed surfaces because they will leave marks on the front side of the puzzle when removed from the board.

There are several ways to proceed from here. If you want to preserve the beauty of the wood, which we recommend, then remove all of the back material.

How do you store puzzles in progress?

A jigsaw mat is one of the finest solutions for keeping unfinished puzzles. You may assemble the puzzle on the mat, then wrap it up and store it out of the way until you have time to work on it again. When you are ready to finish the puzzle, simply place it back onto the mat.

Another option is storage boxes. These can be divided into two categories: those with solid cores and those with foam centers. The most common type of storage box is the cardboard box. These can be bought in various sizes and are easy to find everywhere. They are also very affordable. However, they are not ideal for storing large or intricate puzzles as the openings are relatively small.

If you want a box that is larger than a standard cardboard box, consider buying a plastic box instead. These are available in a wide variety of sizes and can easily hold a large puzzle while still being able to be stored in a small space. Plastic boxes are more expensive than their cardboard counterparts but they last much longer too!

The final option is storage bags. These are useful if you want to store multiple puzzles in one container. Each bag should be labeled with the contents' number and name so you can find them easily. Storage bags can be found at most craft stores and are affordable enough for anyone to buy them.
