Lobe-Bird Preening Instructions
Polymer Clay is delicate, as are our birds, so it's best to be gentle at all times! To keep the birb's feathers looking reeeeeeal good, follow the instructions below. These also apply to our acrylic earrings.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LOBE BIRDS
While not instantly detrimental, avoid wearing in water. Extended exposure to water could have an adverse effect on the finish and the stability of the earring post.
Avoid handling with excess oily product on your hands (moisturiser, sunscreen etc) – our earrings are finished with paint details and satin varnish that may wear off if mistreated.
Do not try to bend the clay. Once baked, this clay maintains a very slight flexibility but can snap if mishandled.
Do not drop (or, try not to drop?)
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR REAL BIRDS
Love them lots.
If you ACTUALLY have questions on bird care, I'd love to chat but you should also consult your avian vet! I'm not a trained animal professional! Just a professional crazy bird lady.
