Items produced by Peter are cast from a ceramic/resin mix which makes them very durable. However, they still need to be handled with care to avoid chips and more serious damage. If any of your pieces suffer any damage there is no need to panic as Peter does offer a repair service, for more details please email email@example.com.
To clean your collection it is advisable to use either a soft paintbrush, cosmetics brush, photographic lens brush or a toothbrush to gently remove any build-up of dust. For a more thorough clean items can be held briefly under a tap without affecting the paint, however, they should not be soaked in water or detergent for any length of time. Cotton buds can be used to help remove stubborn stains such as a build of nicotine. Make up a solution with washing up liquid and water, dip the cotton bud in the solution and then gently wipe the bud over your item, you should see the build-up of dirt transfer to the bud.
To help eliminate any sort of damage and reduce the amount of time spent dusting your collection then it is advisable to display it behind glass. Please refer to the article How to display your collection for help and inspiration.
