When treated with the same care with which it was made and by following this simple care guide your Dinosaur Designs piece should last you a lifetime.
Resin is strong and durable but should be treated as a ceramic as it can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. To restore sheen to your jewellery, simply apply moisturiser. To keep your polished resin jewellery in great condition, simply wipe with a clean, dry cloth.
Sterling silver, brass and gold are naturally soft metals and should be treated with special care to avoid damage. Avoid exposure to perfumes, oils and household chemicals. If tarnishing occurs wipe with a jewellery cleaning cloth or clean with a suitable cleaning agent.
PLATED JEWELLERY / CHROME
To restore shine to plated jewellery use a clean soft cloth (such as a silver polish cloth). Plated jewellery can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent dissolved in hot water. Do not use caustic cleaning materials (such as “Brasso”) as this may damage the plating. Keep away from hard surfaces as bumps and scratches will cause wear to the plating. To extend the life of your plated jewellery we recommend keeping in a soft pouch or jewellery box, out of direct sunlight and heat.
Dinosaur Designs homewares are suitable for cold food presentation only. These products should be hand washed in warm water. Resin may appear “frosted” after washing and should be rubbed with a drop of cooking oil to restore sheen. All resin items are strong and durable but should be treated like a ceramic as they can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. Resin is not fire resistant and so should not be used in an oven, a microwave, or as an ashtray. It should also not be placed in the dishwasher.
Dinosaur Designs metal homewares are not suitable for food service. Wipe only with a soft cloth, do not put in the dishwasher. If hand-washing, dry well immediately. Products have been coated with a film to prevent tarnishing in the short term. Polishing with Brasso will remove this film. Handle with care. Brass is a soft metal, which may be scratched or dented.
Dinosaur Designs glassware is hand blown in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. Each piece is unique and when treated with care will last forever. When filling vases with water hold at the base and fill slowly. From time to time the surface of sand blasted vases may appear frosted. To restore sheen simply rub with moisturiser. Shiny glass vases should be cleaned with a good quality glass cleaner.
