Care for Your Busts

Caring for busts helps preserve their beauty over years of enjoyment. Follow these tips:

  • For indoor pieces, keep away from direct sunlight to avoid fading. Filtered light works best.
  • Marble and concrete busts can be sealed to prevent staining and absorption. Re-apply sealant every few years.
  • Bronze develops an attractive patina over time, but can be polished gently with lemon and baking soda paste if desired.
  • Clean with soft cloths and mild cleanser only when needed. Avoid harsh chemicals.
  • Allow adequate ventilation and moisture control to prevent mold or cracks.
  • Disperse weight evenly if placing on shelves. Felt pads can prevent scratches.

By caring for your busts properly, you'll love displaying them in your home for decades to come! Their timelessness never goes out of style.
