To ensure your sculpture will have a long life, care for it by following these guidelines below.
Avoid exposing your sculpture to too much heat or direct sunlight. Store in a cool or room-temperature place. If it's exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time, it will fade over time.
Polymer clay is not like a terracotta clay, it's more fragile than ceramics, so try to avoid squeezing it too tight, handling it too much or being rough with it.
To clean, you can use a feather duster to gently remove surface dust. Never use any harsh chemical cleaners to clean the sculpture.
Avoid high impact. High impact may cause a breakage of your sculpture. The sculptures are made to last but they are also delicate. Always crate and wrap them for safe transport.
Avoid external temperatures and elements. These sculptures are not meant to be outdoors as garden or ornamental figures. Avoid placing your sculptures in areas where over time they can fade and lose their sheen, such as near windows where direct sunlight and heat can adversely affect the piece. Extreme cold temperatures can also cause the finish to become dull.
Avoid sharp objects. Sharp metals may also scratch the surface of your sculpture. Handle your clay sculpture as you would handle your fine jewelry.
Avoid harsh cleaning products, dust with a soft cloth.
The sculpture is a display piece and is not meant to be played with.
