Here at John Beswick we are so thrilled to be able to supply our collectors with outstanding products with incredible artistic detailing and made to the highest quality. That is why we understand that as a collector you will want to keep your hand cast ceramic figurine in pristine condition so you can preserve it for years to come. But that doesn’t mean that your figurine has to be stored away in a box, never to be enjoyed. For those who aren’t quite sure how to care for their figurine, we have put together a simple guide that you can follow, so your figurines can stand proud on display in the best condition possible.
How To Clean Your Ceramic Figurine
Even the cleanest of houses can see ornaments get slightly mucky from time to time, and your figurine is no exception. Many of our collectors are often frightened to clean their figurines, as they believe that they could damage the colour or accidentally drop them. However, giving your figurines a good clean once in a while, actually ensures that they are kept in good condition and looking their best. Also, no collector wants to see their sunning display gathering dust.
To clean your figurines, simply wipe them over with a soft cloth to remove dust particles. If they are particularly mucky, then you can wash them with warm water and a clean cloth. We would advise not using any products or soaps when you wash or wipe the figurines as this can damage the finish over time. If you are washing your figurines in the sink, then use a plastic basin bowl with a folded tea towel placed in the base. The tea towel will help cushion the figurines from the bottom of the bowl helping to reduce the risk of breakage.
How To Maintain Your Figurine’s Colour
All of our figurines are hand painted to enhance their life-like features and create a product that we adore. So as a collector, you will want to maintain this colour for years to come.
Our figurines are covered in a high quality coating that helps to protect its colour. However if you would like to help protect it from fading, we suggest keeping it away from direct sunlight. Move your figurine away from a window sill and onto a shelf that doesn’t have lots of natural light on it all day. Leaving on a window sill means that one side could fade more than the other, creating an uneven effect.
We hope that this article has helped you understand how to take care of your figurine. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
