Photographs that stick to glass often prove difficult to remove. If you've ever tried to release a precious picture stuck to its frame, you may have ended up with a ruined photograph and a messy piece of glass. The reason for the sticking is the picture coating, which is typically either gelatin or plastic. Fortunately, however, there is a technique that can be successful in removing newer pictures from glass.
Things You'll Need
- Plastic bag
- Single-edged razor
Place the glass and picture in a plastic, sandwich-style bag. Leave the bag open so that moisture can escape.
Place the bag with the frame and picture inside in your freezer. Leave the bag to chill for a day.
Remove the picture and glass from the freezer. You should be able to lift the picture gently off of the glass. Use a single-edge razor to help you remove the picture from the glass if it is stubborn.
