IMPORTANT: Taking care of your polymer clay doll

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Your polymer sculpture is made of a high quality sculpturing compound, and has been fired to factory specifications. Polymer clay is strong and durable, and has been used in doll making for over 20 years by doll artists. Polymer clay has the look of real skin tone, and the feel of porcelain, but is more shatter and chip resistant than ceramic or porcelain.

You can care for your polymer sculpture as you would any other figurine or collectible. Keep it out of reach of pets and children, as it will likely break if dropped on a hard surface.

You can dust your polymer sculpture by using a damp cloth, or you can blow off dust with “canned air” (keyboard cleaner) or a hair dryer set on low.

You can gently restyle hair, if needed, by using your wet fingertips. If the hair becomes dusty, simplyuse a damp cloth to remove dust, and then restyle with your fingers. If you’d prefer, you can also use hair styling mousse to restyle. Just put a little on your fingertip and, with your thumb and forefinger, moisten and style the hair as you like.

Feel free to contact me with any questions about your sculpture.
