Cleaning figurines

chris76January 27, 2010

I have some 1950's era Napco ceramic(?) figurines that were finished with the "COLD PAINTING" process, and I am not sure how to clean them. I have removed the paint from another old piece by cleaning too aggressively, and want to be careful with these. ANY IDEAS??? Thanks!

Ag ood dusting brush....like an artist's paint brush for oil paints.
Not sure what cold painting is....but surely cold water with a little drop of shampoo ought not to hurt.

I used lukewarm water with a drop of dish soap on a soft sponge and gently swabbed the pieces. I then rinsed them gently and dried them with a soft towel, and they looked great!

I do Wildfowl Artist Carvings. They are finished with Acryic Paints with a Clear Coat.

I use Windex to clean them.

What ever you use , try to clean an inconspicious spot and leave it dry, for a test.
