1. How long does the clay artwork last?
- The artwork is made using non-dry clay modelling clay or polymer clay.
- Both types of clay will last for many years.
- They are firm enough to retain their shape indefinitely.
2. Will the clay shrink or change colour over time?
- No, the clay used in the artwork will not shrink or change colour over time.
- It's recommended to keep the art piece away from direct sunlight to avoid any physical changes.
3. I am moving house and I need to store the artwork for a period of time. Do you have any tips? Do I have to store it flat?
- When storing the artwork, it's best to take several precautions to ensure its safety during the move.
- Begin by wrapping it carefully using a layer of acid-free paper to protect it from dust and potential scratches.
- Add a second layer of something similar to packaging paper cushioning wrap for added protection.
- Ideally, place the wrapped artwork inside a sturdy cardboard box or a transparent box with a secure lid to prevent dust and damage during transportation.
- If you must store it flat, ensure that the artwork is placed facing up to avoid any clay pieces detaching from the board due to gravity. Even though I apply enough pressure during creation, if it is stored facing down for an extended period, this could potentially occur.
4. How do I spot-clean the frame? Are there any special instructions?
- Spot-cleaning the frame is a delicate process to maintain its pristine condition.
- Start by using a soft, dry cloth to gently wipe away any dust or smudges on the frame's surface.
- Avoid using water or cleaning solutions, as they may damage both the frame and the artwork.
- However, if you need to clean the glass area to remove fingerprints or other spots from different materials, follow these steps:
- Use a glass cleaner like "Mr. Muscle" specifically designed for glass surfaces.
- Take a clean cloth made from cotton fibers.
- Apply the glass cleaner sparingly onto the cloth, rather than directly onto the glass.
- Gently clean the glass using circular strokes to ensure a streak-free finish.
- Be cautious not to let any cleaning solution come into contact with the frame or artwork, as it can cause damage.
