Care Instructions: Great care needs to be taken when cleaning figurines and sculptural items as these products often contain intricate and delicate details. Figurines and sculptural items may be washed by hand, using warm water and a mild liquid detergent applied with a soft, damp cloth. On items with intricate details and small-sculpted parts such as hand-sculpted flowers, it is best to use a small, soft make-up brush instead of a cloth. Do not use abrasive materials or powders for cleaning. Do not submerge the product or get water inside the holes in the base. Dry the larger, open areas with a soft cloth. Allow intricate or delicate details to air dry. Be sure the item is completely dry before returning to display area.
Use & Durability: As a general rule, confident handling of figurines and sculptural items, combined with a reasonable amount of care in cleaning should be all that is necessary to safeguard your collection. Generally, do not expose figurines and sculptural items to extreme temperatures, high levels of moisture or rapid temperature changes.
