Care Guidelines to Help Your Resin Jewelry Look Better Longer
As resin is a plastic, extreme heat can cause it to warp and even melt. Take your resin jewelry OFF when swimming/bathing/showering/hot tubbing or sitting in a sauna.
Avoid storing your resin jewelry in direct sunlight as it can cause some resins to yellow/cloud or the design to fade. Fading can happen especially with sun/heat sensitive products, like liquid crystal and UV sensitive paint if they are overexposed.
Abrasion and Sharp Objects
Although resin is a hard plastic, it can scratch or even chip if handled incorrectly. Scratches can occur from your resin piece coming into contact with things like coins, keys, other jewelry, and other abrasive surfaces. Chipping can happen when a piece is bumped against another object or from being dropped. It is advisable to remove your jewelry if it will come into contact with any surfaces or objects that might damage it. Examples: housecleaning, yardwork, sports, bathing/showering/sauna/hot tub, etc.
Things you use every day can affect your resin jewelry. You probably don’t think of them as chemicals, but acetone, nail polish, perfumes, oils, dyes & colorants, hair products, some soaps and other products can affect your resin by dulling it or worse. If you're going to use any of these products, remove your jewelry first.
Never submerge your resin jewelry or expose it to high humidity or you may damage it. Take your resin jewelry OFF when swimming/bathing/showering/hot tubbing or sitting in a sauna (yes, I’m repeating myself).
Cleaning Your Precious
You can easily clean your piece at home with a soft t-shirt material cloth, cool water and a little bit of mild soap like Dawn. Mix a tiny bit of the soap into the water and dip your cloth into it, only slightly making it damp. Slowly and gently, use the cloth to polish your piece. You do not want to cause friction as it will build up heat and you may damage the resin.
Once done, dry your jewelry with a soft dry cloth and store in a cool dry place.
